Larger A4 Plus Size:
It has been designed specifically to fit the larger size A4+ sheets of paper (A4+ is 250 x 337 mm) this gives you the option to trim your finished prints to full size A4.

Made with quality materials and hand finished one of these A4+ printing / book binding presses is a solid investment for your studio.
Our press uses a heavy gauge screw system often found in woodworking vices. With one of the strongest threads on the market its 30 mm diameter trapezoidal design will last a lifetime. The hardwood handle can slide through the top yolk to allow more force to be easily applied to your work.
Manufactured from quality birch plywood chosen for its strength, durability and stability. We have used very generous thicknesses whilst maintaining the largest openings possible. Our design uses a slot together system that is held in place with substantial steel bolts. The bolts are hidden as they run through the inside of the wood. Steel plates underneath spread the working load out to maximise the presses strength whilst minimising the loads on the wood.
Birch ply is an ideal choice and is used widely in furniture home decor and structural designs. Its stability is perfect for this type of press it will keep its flatness and strength for many years. Designed for the discerning user and home crafter alike. A valuable addition to any printer’s studio.
Designed by our award-winning designer using computer aided design, each press is manufactured using our computer-controlled machinery. Once the parts are made, we sand all the sides and give each part a slight round over edge. Every part is then varnished with a quality varnish. Your press is then hand assembled and tested prior to dispatch.
Your press will be supplied to you fully assembled and ready to use simply unbox and enjoy.
