I want a printing press

I want a printing press. Since I have been doing so much with photo-transfers or block prints in my mixed medium projects a Press would be SO MUCH easier!!!

First I laid down a thin plywood board I bought to help my easel support larger canvases. Then I laid down a sheet of paper, followed by my project. Then the transfer (or block - but this time it is a large photo transfer). Then I rolling pin it and tack it in place. Then another thin plywood board, followed by a stack of blank sheets of paper (Paper does weigh a lot!) Then my pressed wood drawing board. Then that metal box, filled with all sorts of little metal pieces I have collected over the years and then followed by the tote - filled with books and binders and the such...
How long should I leave it under there? A press would be quicker and easier.  I want a press.
