Choose What You Pay

We designed the Open Press Project to make printmaking as accessible as we possibly can to give access to these beautiful techniques. It was quite obvious to us that this would affect the pricing of our presses as well.

So here’s our idea:



You’ll get three options and can freely choose what you want to pay for your press.


Own Cost

Our vision is to make printmaking more accessible. If you can't afford another option, we offer our press at cost price: Use discount code "OWNCOST" at checkout. If you want to support us nevertheless, spread the word about the Open Press Project to support us!

Standart Price

By choosing this price you join us in our vision to make printmaking more accessible and give us the chance to save money for crisis and pay ourselves a minimal salary. With your contribution we'd be able to keep the Open Press Project alive.

Future Projects Price

By choosing this price you would not only guarantee the ongoing of the Open Press Project, but you would also give us the possibility to let it grow, implement new ideas and work on new designs for ongoing open-source innovation!


Open Source

If buying a press is not an option for you at the moment you can check out the original open source version of this press here. The plans are available to download for free and if you have access to a 3D printer you can print one for yourself, you only need to get the screws.


Cost Distribution


Open Press Own Cost



All of these aspects result in our own costs for manufacturing a single press without a salary for us. Any amount on top of our own costs is greatly appreciated, will go towards paying us a small salary and help us continue the Open Press Project.

Fair Price Guarantee

Independent of what price you choose you will not pay too much. With “Fair Price Guarantee” we ensure you that if we make more money than expected e.g. by selling more presses than expected we will never pay us more than the average salary and will donate everything above to charity.
