Used Printmaking Presses

Used Printmaking Presses

Over the 50 plus years of manufacturing and repairing printmaking presses, we have seen and repaired every style of printmaking press from every manufacturer of printmaking presses. Often, we acquire used presses on trade-ins. These used presses range from large floor model presses to small tabletop presses. We acquire a variety of different presses from different manufacturers including etching, lithography, combination, and monotype presses. Once we get a traded-in press, our technicians inspect, test, and rebuild the press. Then we offer it for sale as a used printmaking press. All the used printmaking presses offered by Conrad Machine Co. are in like-new working condition. Every part on the presses is thoroughly examined and tested to insure proper working order before the used press leaves our factory. You can be assured when you buy a used press from Conrad Machine Co., you are getting a used printmaking press that functions as if it were new. We are so confident in our repaired and rebuilt used printmaking presses that we offer warranties on the presses as if they were new.

Conrad Machine Co. Printmaking Press Trade-in Policy

Many printmakers need to sell their older presses to make room in their studio for their new presses. As you may know, selling your old, large floor model etching or lithography printmaking press on the open market can prove be quite difficult. Potential buyers may not be will to ship the press long distances and you may not have the resources to transport the press yourself. Not to mention—if you find a buyer, you may not be able sell it for what it's worth. That is why Conrad Machine Co., looking to help printmakers acquire new presses, accepts traded-in presses toward the purchase of a new press. If you have an older press and would like upgrade or purchase a new press, we will allow you to trade in your old press toward the purchase a new press. Even if your press is broken, we will accept it as a trade-in toward the purchase of a new press. We accept trade-ins on printmaking presses made by any manufacturer-- not just presses built by Conrad Machine Co. If you have a press that you would like to trade in toward the purchase of a new press, please contact our factory for more details about our trade-in policies.

In some circumstances, Conrad Machine Co. will even buy your used press directly. If you need to make room in your studio or educational institute and have to sell of one of your older presses, Conrad Machine Co. may buy your older press from you. Please contact Conrad Machine Co. for more information about trading in your older presses.
