I’ve spent the last 8 months printing without a printing press and I now feel like I have builders arms from all that burnishing! Burnishing is a very physical process and takes time, so when I had the opportunity to get a printing press I jumped with joy!
As I have bills to pay, my artwork is my second job and therefore the time I can dedicate to this is limited. So, having a printing press should speed up the printing process and improve my productivity – I hope. I bought my printing press from Great Art and it’s an ABIG PRINTING PRESS 350MM. It’s quite a weighty creature and I’ve had to find a sturdy table to put it on. (So glad I didn’t get rid of the old pine coffee tables in the end!). However, it’s a lovely piece of German engineering and I’m looking forward to many days of printing in 2013.
