Hunter Penrose has been involved in making and selling equipment for printmaking since the 1890s. Key amongst this equipment is the range of etching presses. These presses are functional and very sturdy and retain strong traditional designs.

                Printmaking Products price list  

We supply a wide range of consumables for printmaking. Our background has been very much in the plate preparation area and we sell zinc and copper plates and their processing chemicals. We also sell photo-resists. The best known is the Lepages Photoengraving Glue. This product can be used for creating photo-sensitive coatings on to many metals for subsequent chemical etching.

                Photoengraving Glue Technical Notes

Zinc and copper plates can be supplied uncoated for you to apply your own resist or with the pre-sensitised coating already applied.

The latest presensitised zinc plate for photo-engraving is Hydro-Solve. It's available in two grades - blue coating for Zinc and red for magnesium.
