Ternes Burton Registration Pins - Plastic - Pair
Special Order Item Please see below for details.
The new plastic Ternes Burton Registration Pins work the same as the traditional metal pins. They are to be used with Ternes Burton Registration Stripping Tabs (sold separately) for registering relief prints. They are a similar height to the .085 pins, still lower in total height than traditional lino.
Ternes Burton register pins and tabs align layers of material accurately to help you achieve the tight registration you require for lino reductions and other block printing, enabling tight registration on complicated multicolour projects. These pins are designed to be used multiple times, just like the metal ones, but are a cheaper option making printmaking more accessible for more people.
How to use:
Secure your pins down to a piece of board using parcel tape, depressing the tape into the holes. Position your lino onto your board with double-sided tape. Work out where to position your paper on top of the lino. Clip two of the plastic stripping tabs (sold separately) over the pins. Use masking tape to fix these to the top of your paper. Repeat for each piece of paper in your edition. Each time a print is made, your paper can be slipped onto the pins using the tabs, keeping it in the same position each time.
