I’ve used the term ‘small presses’ to cover anything that’s operated by hand. These presses were often marketed to the amateur, but many professional jobbing printers used them for smaller work — like tickets and letter headings. Small presses have a number of advantages: they’re portable; they need no power to work; they’re easy to clean and use.
