The key to pressing plants, either for a scientific collection or for crafts, is to dry them rapidly and pressed evenly flat. Our conveniently-sized Hiker’s Plant Press measures 6 by 9 inches. The frame is made of durable marine plywood, and comes with one 48″ x 0.75-inch strap with spring-loaded buckle. It includes 24 blotter sheets and 13 ventilators (corrugated cardboard sheets). Blotter sheets and cardboard are reusable many times. Weight approximately 1½ lbs. Includes instructions. Strap is extra long to accommodate additional layers if desired. Additional strap, blotter sheets and cardboard available here.
