Polymetaal has two locations:

  • The "machine workshop" Leiden. Evertsenstraat 69 C, where all the printmaking equipment is produced. Also the following products are stored there: presses, ferric chloride, nitric acid, etching blankets, and unpolished copper- and zinc plates.
  • The "warehouse" for printmaking materials (paper, tools, books, polished etching plates, lino, wood, inks, etc.etc.). "Everything" for printmaking you can find here. The warehouse is in Oude Wetering. (Along motorway A4, 10 km north of Leiden, near Schiphol (Amsterdam) airport)
