All of our presses are multi – printers able to print all intaglio and relief.

Our presses are hand made in Shropshire designed  by specialist printmaker Dave Gunning BA(HONS) over 40 years ago. These excellent printing presses have been selling all over the world ever since..

They can and have been delivered to anywhere in the UK, Europe, America, Africa, Asia and Australia and anywhere else you can think of. 

In 1980 there were no presses on the market that printed to a remarkable standard as well being multi-printers, printing all kinds of plates from intaglio to relief, at an affordable price. After Dave Gunning made one for himself a fellow printmaker used it and immediately wanted one for himself…and so the Gunning Etching Printing press business was born!

40 years on and son in law and specialist printmaker Dave Mason-Gunning builds the machines with his dedicated team of engineers and printmakers.

Our Etching Printing press range gives outstanding results, offering reliability and flexibility. Trusted by academic organisations and by 1000’s of artists around the world of all skill levels.

If you ever need any help with anything technical we are full-time printmakers so just give us a call.  

Our etching printing presses are made using fabricated steel, dense walled stainless steel cylinders and no maintenance bearings, available with either a star or round wheel. The Gunning Arts Etching Presses are powder coated and easily maintained. They include safety features such as bed safety stops, press lockdown as well as easy removal of a star or round wheel and press bed. Each etching printing press is supplied with runners and a printing blanket so you can get printing straight away and easily print many different thicknesses of the plate.

We also offer a wide range of printmaking materials including inks, registration beds, registration pins with tabs and many thicknesses of runners and Swanskin printing blankets.

Dave Gunning’s daughters Jenny Gunning BA(HONS)GCF (Specialist Printmaker) and Sarah Morris (Giclée printer, framer and colour specialist) work at our beautiful printmaking Gallery and Studios and sell the etching printing presses all over the world.

No Interest, monthly payments are available so please ring for more details and see the delivery and workshop options below.
