The Slama Press Ball Graphic Press is a beautifully crafted hand printing press designed and manufactured in the Czech Republic. It was developed by Milos Slama whilst he was searching for a solution to the printing of his reduction linocuts in various sizes, as well as something that was portable and affordable. Slama Press opens up the possibility of working across a wide variety of print formats and paper types.

Based on the ball bearing baren, a modern interpretation of a traditional Japanese tool but with added weight, it makes light work of burnishing a relief print. The freely rotating ball bearings create multiple pressure points evenly across the disc and the disc itself rotates around a central axis as you move across the paper. In addition, the 10mm ball bearings on the large Slama Press allow prints to be taken on heavier paper weights. The presses can take relief prints, drypoints, etchings, and lithographs.

Slama Press requires a tiny space to store so is suitable for the home studio. It comes with a lovely wooden stand to store safely.
