I bought Ternes Burton pins after watching this tutorial a while back and they are amazing! I can't believe I spent so long not knowing about them.

I used to use these types of pins when I worked in the printing industry years ago. Nice to know I will be able to make some use of the knowledge from when I was but a lass. 😊

I'm a printmaking professor and I love your videos. This is super helpful for when I explain registration to my students.

Thanks for the tutorial! :-) Is it safe to pass the pins through a press with blankets at a reasonable pressure? are the tops rounded?

Wondeful video! Thanks. Do you went the paper first then stick the pins?

Those tabs are a lot better than punching holes into the paper. In school, we used a hole punch directly on our printing paper so they can be registered to the pins. We would then just tear off the side with the holes after finishing the print. I felt like we were wasting so much paper. I like how you can reuse those tabs.

Great tutorial - just one question - does the masking tape not ruin the paper when you take it off the plastic tabs?

Thank you for the tutorial! Which height is better? What's the difference in the working process for the pins of different heights?
