Re: [BKARTS] photopolymer plates

What you are talking about here is called letterset
printing. In this case, the blanket of the offset
press is replaced by a wrong reading PPM plate, and
the plate cylender is covered by a thin unsupported
neoprene blanket. The impression of the images on the
plate is made directly to the paper.

The term Letterset was coined as being Letterpress
printed by Offset presses. I believe it was
copyrighted by Messers Heidelburger.

Pagan, Pagan, what are you finding?
Yours is the road that winds lonely and far,
Strange are the shadows that round you come creeping,
Still through the clouds is the glint of a star!
