KF152 Letterpress Polymer Plates

We have been using and supplying KF152 Letterpress Printing Plates now for several years, both in our plate making business and printing.  Combined with our Chase Base or mounted type high, to 0.918in, they are a wonderful addition to any letterpress studio.  There is no alternative to the KF152 plate, pretenders to the throne offer a deeper plate but our letterpress polymer plates have a shore hardness of 67 and are suitable for many thousands of impressions.  Recommended for a deep relief the KF152 has a deeper shoulder than the KF95 and give that beautiful deep impression that many clients want to see from letterpress printing. They can hold a fine line, down to 0.3pt and work really well on all board thicknesses but show up really well on anything over 300gsm. We’ve used them successfully on a 1050gsm triplex board before now to great effect.
