PCANZ Portable Printing Press Hire

The Print Council Aotearoa New Zealand (PCANZ) owns two portable intaglio printing presses (Loan Presses) for the purposes of promoting printmaking in education and supporting members in their printmaking endeavours. These Loan Presses are currently located in Auckland and Hawke’s Bay and can be rented for limited periods of time depending on who the ‘Borrower’ is.

Please note that these presses are very heavy and will require two able bodied people to carry them. The removable components are packed in a heavy large canvas carry bag. You will require a sturdy table or bench top to support the press while in use.
