8005Re: [PPLetterpress] bringing the cost of plates down
- Jun 29, 2007I would ditto what Alex said but add that you also need some large wood type.
A 16 x 20 photopolymer plate is going to be EXPENSIVE no matter how you do it. Thats a BIG plate by photopolymer standards!
If you want to make posters use wood and large foundry type for the letters and minimize your use of photopolymer by just using it for photos and artwork.
Wood and lino cuts are also a good idea.
An additional option would be to use silk screens in addition to letterpress for certain elements of your poster.
