What are its features?

A Really Classic Printing Press

The ROKR Classic Printing Press has a movable type printing technology that simply presses the handle and the printing plate flips down to print the contents of the plate onto the paper.

Printing with Movable Type

The ROKR Classic Printing Press provides a removable, free-form rubber sheet for lettering and patterning. You can remove the rubber sheet, layout the desired letters and patterns, and then install the sheet back on the press.

Lighting Indication

The ROKR Classic Printing Press is equipped with warming lights on each side. When printing is completed, the lights on both sides illuminate to indicate the working status.

Dynamic Bear Printer

The ROKR Classic Printing Press is more than just a printing press, we have added more fun elements to it. The printing press features three hard-working bears that demonstrate different actions while printing, such as pouring ink, applying ink and carrying tools.

How to use it?

Getting your printing done with the ROKR Classic Printing Press is easy. Here's how to use it:

Prepare all the things you need

Before printing, you need to make sure that you have assembled the ROKR Classic Printing Press correctly.

Then you will know a few of the main components: the ink board, printing plate, and printing table.

Before printing, you need to remove the printing plate and lay out the print content.

Once the layout is done, install the printing plate onto the press.


Placement of printing paper

ROKR Classic Printing Press has a storage box underneath the printing table.

When printing, you just need to take the printing paper from this storage box and place it on the printing table correctly.

When the above steps are completed, press the handle firmly, the printing plate will slowly descend, and flip. And when the printing plate touches the printing table when each side of the light is on to complete the printing.
