I have had several emails from people wondering why they cannot get a deep impression on their table top press. Even with a tremendous amount of packing, you still might not get the desired impression depth. I love my Chandler and Price Pilot but sometimes larger plates, especially photopolymer, will not give me a deep impression. The reason for this is the size (and the fact its manual doesn’t help either). Smaller presses impart a lower PSI than a larger and/or motorized press.

However, I have found that my Poco Proof Press which is also a manual press, make a very deep impression.

Impression depth test #1

This impression was made by a magnesium plate and pressed on 220# Crane Lettra paper. If you take a look at the post Christmas in October, you can see the difference in impression depth between the Pilot and Poco.
