Even so, they can be used to transfer images in many other printing techniques.

With the right paper and a little practice, this baren can even be used to transfer images from offset, lithography or polyester printing plates.

A Baren like this cannot completely replace the work of vertical presses, presses or lithographic presses, but it is a good alternative when this type of machinery is not available.
