PHOTOPOLYMER GRAVURE

PHOTOPOLYMER GRAVURE

A method of transferring a hand produced or photographic image via a transparent subsrate onto a pre-sensitised plate also known as a Solar Plate. This is a good way of successfully reproducing a range of tones without the labour intensive process of traditional Photogravure. This is then inked up and printed in the traditional intaglio method. These plates can also be used to create relief plates to print text and letterpress type imagery.
