Printmaking Resources

Updated on June 8, 2010

Welcome to printmaking resources and suppliers online!

Looking for tools, supplies, paper, presses or any materials you might need for printmaking? Look no further! This lens is dedicated to companies that supply various resources to printmakers. Some of the links are to general art supply stores, others to printmaking-specific suppliers (such as press manufacturers, etc.).

General Printmaking Suppliers

Tools, equipment, materials - everything and anything you might need for printmaking.

Printmaking Inks

Any supplier that specializes in printmaking inks (either specifically or as part of their inventory)


Most of the general printmaking suppliers also have printmaking papers. These are paper-specific suppliers.

Printmaking Materials

Manufacturers of materials that are unique to printmaking.

Presses and Equipment

Press or printmaking equipment manufacturers.

Screen Printing Resources

Suppliers specifically for screen printers (thanks to Forth Estate for original contributions)

Carving Tools

Not printmaking specific, but some good resources for wood carving tools to use with woodblock, linocut or moku hanga printmaking techniques.

      Greetings -

      I'm cleaning out my studio and selling paper I dragged home from China and Mexico. I hope your members will be interested.

      VERY LARGE CHINESE handmade paper from Anjou Provence: I have 58 sheets of lovely, thin, white paper 54" x 27". That's HUGE. I dragged it home from China myself. It's good for printmaking, marbling, books or collage.

      Buy in lots of 20 (or more) at $2 a sheet the cost of a mailing tube.

      Email Patrice Baldwin at or call (520)207-9779.

      MEXICAN AMATE in 3 colors. 24 sheets of very long white amate - 50" x 16" - also, 28 sheets of 15.5" x 23" at $2 per sheet (in lots of 10 or more).

      Dark brown: 2 sheets 36" x 23" (raggedy edges) at $1 each.

      Light brown/green: 3 sheets 23" x 15" at $1 each.

      ONE big printed tapa: 30" x 24" - brown and white design - $10.

      All prices mailing tube.

      Email Patrice Baldwin at or call (520)207-9779.

      [in reply to Liz] I've tried to get non-US suppliers; if anyone knows of printmaking suppliers anywhere, please let me know, and I'll happily add them! There are definitely some Australian suppliers on here, have a look again, but yes, US & UK suppliers are the dominant available. :)

      This is a great lens but as an Australian printmaker none of the US resources are of any use - US companies it seems cannot be bothered dealing with international customers! I've had too many frustrating and humiliating experiences trying to source materials and equipment from the US.
