Hi all! I just ordered the Blick Baby Press off their website for block printing -

I was wondering if I could use this press to print Pronto Plates as well? I've only ever used a litho press to print pronto plates so I'm not entirely sure, I'm assuming it would work ?

From what I have read, Pronto Plates work well with etching presses, so they should work on that press. It is designed for:

"relief block printing (both wood and lino), collagraph, embossing, engraving, and etching."
