A representative from the company stated, "We produce in-house 0.95mm foil-backed polymer plates. The foil element is the thin backing that holds the exposed polymer in place. Our polymer plates are transparent to allow easy registration and are Torelief which is more efficient on press due to their superior long-run capabilities. Our polymer plates are compatible with most letterpress machines. Although polymer, our letterpress plates are hard enough to emboss or deboss with and can hold the finest details."
