Articulate Ink had a custom etching press built for our studio as well as a steel press bed fabricated. This allows for poly-plate lithography processes as well as copper and aluminum etching and relief printing.
We have a ferric chloride acid bath for copper plates that will fit a plate approximately 12 X 20″ We also have an airbrush station for aqua tint.
Articulate Ink has been fortunate to acquire some letterpress equipment over the years!
These two gems are our Kelsey Tabletop Letterpresses circa 1940. These are great for smaller projects like business cards, greeting cards, postcards, etc. Printable size is approximately 3 X 5″
We also have two Proof Presses which have a larger printable area and are great for poster printing!
Types and Fonts
We have wooden as well as lead type in studio. Have a look at some of the fonts available!
Screen Printing Equipment
At Articulate Ink Studios we have screen printing equipment for paper and textile printing!
We have two t-shirt presses with bases of varying sizes to do adult and children’s size t-shirts as well as a base for sleeves and pant legs.
For screen printing on paper, we have three tables of varying sizes with screen clamps to attach the screens.
Our studio is also equipped with a vacuum exposure unit for exposing screens, photo etchings and photopolymer plates for letterpress, as well a washout booth and pressure washer for reclaiming screens.
We also have a 45″ x 55″ industrial grade drying rack for all paper print and a Vastex D 1000 for fast and efficient drying of printed textiles.
