Resingrave Block

Resingrave® 13/16" Block

These hard, white epoxy resin engraving blocks give the same precise, finely detailed and clean edged marks of traditional end-grain boxwood at a fraction of the cost.

NEW! Two Thicknesses - 3/16" Plates plus 13/16" Blocks

Resingrave is now available in thin, 3/16" (4mm) high plates as well as the original 13/16" (21mm) high blocks. The thinner 3/16" Resingrave is etching press friendly while the thicker 13/16" block is designed for letterpress.

Note to letterpress printers: one layer of D1759 Type-High Shim will boost the 13/16" Resingrave block very close to type high. Because the thickness of the block can vary slightly you need to shim it the rest of the way.


Store blocks flat in a dry place at room temperature. Excessive heat can cause Resingrave to become brittle.
