So I thought I'd start by showing my press and registration board. It's a proofing press, which is over 100 years old, and uses a rolling movement. My registration board is a thick piece of MDF. Along 2 sides, I have firmly fixed down 3 metal rulers which gives me a perfect right angle. I stick the paper I am going to be printing on to the rulers. I stick down the longest edge of the paper onto the ruler using low tack masking tape.
Take the second piece of mountcard and slot it into place on the press. Place the wet linocut print you've just taken over the mountcard. The print will transfer to these pieces of lino. Outline them in a sharpie marker. Cut them out.
Here you can see the two different mount card plates for the navy and red colours of ink, and a print of the little red pieces. I always print my lighter colours first,as any mistakes will not be so obvious.
