Film output is included in the price of photopolymer plates.

Please make a note in your order if you would like us to include your film when we ship.
If your file(s) require editing, we will assess a small pre-flight charge (price dependent on the time required for revisions).

Standard Relief Plates (KF95):
Our most popular plate, the KF95 material features a flexible, transparent plastic backing. All KF95 plates come with a double-sided adhesive layer and are designed to fit onto a standard height Boxcar base.

A6 (5.8" x 4.125”): $20
A5 (5.8" x 8.25”): $33
A4 (11.7" x 8.25”): $65
A3 (11.7" x 16.5”): $125

Deep Relief Plates (KF152) and Steel-Backed Plates (KM152):

Our KF152 deep relief plates offer a bit more flexibility for inking, making them a good option for owners of older C&P platen presses or other letterpresses with older rails. Like the KF95 plates, they feature a flexible plastic backing with a double-sided adhesive layer. KF152 plates are designed to fit onto a deep relief Boxcar base.

A6 (5.8" x 4.125”): $23
A5 (5.8" x 8.25”): $37
A4 (11.7" x 8.25”): $70
