Richeson Printing Press Blankets
Printmaking Blankets are Used in Sets
Printing intaglio on an etching press requires a set of blankets. The typical set consists of a sizing catcher, a pusher, and a cushion. However, it is advisable to have an extra sizing catcher since this blanket does become soiled and must be occasionally washed.

Catcher
The sizing catcher is placed closest to the work on the press bed. This blanket may be cleaned if it becomes soiled with ink. It is the least expensive blanket of the set to replace if it becomes overly soiled.

Cushion
The cushion blanket helps to transfer printing pressure form the press to the paper-to-plate contact area. The cushion allow the paper to contact the uneven surfaces of the plate. This contact allows ink to transfer from plate to paper. It is placed over the sizing catcher.

Pusher
This pusher blanket is placed over the cushion blanket aiding in cushioning. It is made of a highly durable woven felt. Being woven the pusher is resists wear due to abrasion from the upper drum of the etching press.
