distinguishing characteristics to this particular press: It has an automatic carriage and says “VanderCarrie” on it!
a few words from the printer who uses it: If you have large coverage areas, you have to ink up a lot because there’s no ink fountain. On large sheets with heavy impression, the paper tends to stretch out.
why we love this particular press: Because it can handle large forms and is less complicated to set up than the Heidelberg Cylinder presses.
