It is recommended that you use a combination of a pusher, a cushion, and a catcher with your Richeson Baby Press so there is less pressure on the top rollers of the press.
Accessories for the Jack Richeson 11″ Baby Press:
- Pusher Blankets are made from dense, wool felt, and are used on top of the cushion blanket to protect it and to reduce the strain on the top roller. Size: 10½″ x 19″ x 1/8″
- Catcher Blankets are made from dense, wool felt, and are used on top of the printing paper to catch the sizing as damp paper runs through the press. Size: 12″ x 26″ x 1/16″
Accessories included in Richeson 11″ Baby Press Kit:
- The Baby Press Cushion is to be placed on top of the Catcher blanket and are used primarily when Block Printing. Size: 10.5″ x 19″ x 1/4″ (included in Kit)
