Letterpress Printing Today

Type High Blocks

Here at Lyme Bay Press we have started to produce type high letterpress printing blocks using our Toyobo KF152 Pholotpolymer plates.
These are a natural progression to our printing products and plates currently available and will enable many printers,

who still use hand set type to incorporate imagery and non standard fonts into their own designs and are of course are suitable

for printers who do not possess one of the Lyme bay Chase Bases.
After much research we have sourced a water/chemical resistant MDF board which we have produced to the correct height to enable

us to mount our standard deep relief KF152 plates. Designed to come up to 0.918”, type high, they will drop straight into your chase

and you will be ready to begin printing.
