This press does not print linocuts at all! All I got was a faded ink impression when I pressed the handle on the press. I could not even get an answer on how to use it from the Jack Richeson helpline. No instructions came with the package either. I wasted my money!

I purchased this hand press for basic home letterpress projects. There is no way to hold paper or letterpress plates in place while printing. The arm does not allow for uniform impressions. The press does not even have feet to prevent it from slipping across a table or workbench. All in all, a complete waste of money and time. Do not buy.

Disappointing. On the cheap and flimsy side. I put it's true value at about $22.95, tops. I'd rather pay more and get a quality device that would last. I would not buy this again.

I don't understand how this press can make uniform, strongly inked block prints. Where do you position the block? How exactly do you press on it? I keep getting weak prints. Someone tell me how! There's no info on the package, and the # to call tells me nothing.
