Re: [PPLetterpress] Copper Engravings/Magnetic Bases
I think you would have to use their bases, considering the depth of the
engraving. These would be much shallower than the other magnetic bases
on the market. I assume the plates have a significant enough steel
backing that allows them to work in a similar fashion however. No prices
listed though, far as I could find. I assume the copper plates would
cost much much more than photopolymer, on the other hand, they won't go
bad over time.
These aren't exactly designed with us "post-letterpress" folks in mind,
but then neither was photopolymer.
