Cincinnati One-Arm Screen Printing Press
This large-format screen printing press was custom-designed and built by John Sullivan. Its maximum print area is 20″ x 30″ and has a convenient lever to pull the squeegee, rather than requiring the physical exertion typically found in manual presses. We’re able to combine large-format screen printing with letterpress on our 19″ x 25″ Vandercook for a truly unique and tactile product.
