Re: RE:plate travel
- Haven't done a large solid in years, but used to use photoengraved
plates on a honeycomb base to do so (I still do if I'm working with a
four color job). These always seemed to work out well registration-
wise but getting adequate ink coverage was the problem unless I opted
for copperusually only did this when I needed to capture detail).
Photopolymer is a much more receptive printing surface but if there
is a tendency for the plate to travel, as the concensus here seems to
indicate, probably safer to stick with the honeycomb base and deal
with the inking problem?

But that plate-creep can be a real bugaboo, esp. if you need very
accurate register. Spray adhesive, tape on the edge of the plate,
butted up pieces of blank plate material- all those remedies have
failed me when the plate has decided it must creep.
