For sale is our beloved Vandercook #4. It is hard to say goodbye to this great press, but life changes means it is time to find a new home.
I have given this press a lot of love, and cared well for it over the years. Its great for stationery, greeting cards, and also posters and broadsides. Excellent for projects with wood type or lino cuts. Plus it’s very user friendly, making it perfect for classes or workshops as well.
The footprint lets it fit into a variety of spaces, and is a real joy to use. Standard 110 plug hooks into any typical household outlet.
We would love to see this press go to a good home, so that it is cared for and utilized for decades to come. It is currently in our studio in Richmond, VA and can be viewed by appointment.
