Guadalupe, the watermark is along the side. It is also not on every sheet. That is because when I cut the paper only some had a watermark. But I still think it is nice to use it when one can to show the paper used and the level of quality the paper might have.

About the resume. If you have participated in Baren exchanges you should list that and list your membership to this group. Also it depends on which exchange you took part in but remember one piece of work goes into a museum form every exchange. That can also be placed on your resume. Also Baren is a member of a national organaization, Mike or Barbara you would know which one and this will also be something you can list.

Sorry about using hotmail to reply, but it is Easter week here and the circuits are so busy that I can not connect through Outlook Express.

Hey Eli,

That does look like it would be fun to experiment with. I found the same product at several other places, including Ebay. Here is one example with several models:

The cheapest price seems to be in the $50 range. There are also heavier wringers with larger diameter rolers available, like the old style clothes wringers:

Supplied with a proper bed, these would probably print etchings reasonably well. But for relief, a simple bottle jack press would be easier to set up and cheaper. If you do try it, be sure to let us know how it works.

Speedball puts out a press of very similar design, but it is pretty pricey ... about $500:

Cheers ........ Charles
