Pocket Press Kit


I created the Pocket Press so everyone can print etchings, monoprints, and relief prints like linocuts and woodblock prints at home. The Pocket Press prints bigger than any other mini press. Press play to see how!

I now offer two press options.

Unfinished: $60

Finished: $75

Unfinished presses are not sanded or sealed. I save time and you save money.

Finished pressed are hand sanded and sealed with a natural, high quality Linseed Oil.

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

The Pocket Press is the smallest Etching Press

The Pocket Press prints intaglio, relief and monoprints. This printmaking kit includes the handheld pocket press plus everything you need to set up your printmaking station at home or on the go.

Each kit includes:

  • one 3.5″ x 2.5″ pocket press
  • a 9″ x 8″ rubber press bed
  • two 9″ x 8″ felt blankets
  • a large clip to attach your printmaking station to the edge of a desk or table
  • illustrated instructions

Essentially a handheld etching press, the Pocket Press concentrates your strength as you press in overlapping rows. Watch the video below to see how it works!

I recommend you start out with a water based ink and soak high quality papers for 20-30 minutes. Refer to my blog for insight on using this press with a variety of inks, paints and substrates.

I make each mini press by hand. I saw, drill and sand each wood block. I also source, construct and affix the roller hardware and brand each press. I cut all the felt blankets and rubber press beds and pack them, too!

I strive to be zero waste. This means the color of your press parts or felt may vary depending on which option is greenest. Your kit may arrive in another business’ box or padded envelope for the same reason. I always reuse packaging to save trees and cut down on plastic waste.

About Backorders. Backorders may take 2-8 weeks to ship, but you will be first in line when a new batch of presses is made.

Domestic and international shipping. Please be aware that overseas orders may incur fees at customs and may be held at your post office. The USPS has been through a lot lately. I’m proud to support them, but orders may be delayed. Feel free to message me to purchase priority mail shipping.
