Regarded as “ The Prince of Presses”, this platen press not only letterpress, but also prints serial numbers and does perforation and die cut, at a minimum 2000 press/hr.
The iron maiden, weighing over 3 tons and made in 1891, still prints at it’s full capacity and speed. We also use her for die-cutting purposes.
The only cylinder press in the studio, she also has the largest sheet size measuring up to 14 3/4 x 20 “ , which enables us to print large format posters.
Our mini ones, we have two Adana 5 x 3” presses, we use them mostly during workshops. They are small and handy, great for hands-on demonstrations.
