Solar Plate Etching
For these processes we use a 32" x 54" Rochat Etching Press with high quality, clean blankets ensuring maximum print finish.
Our plates sourced directly from the manufacturer, are never pre fogged and we stock sizes from A6 up to A1.
We can print up to 4 plate solar etchings in tight register.

Ian Brown, Pancake Rocks II, 4 plate Solar Plate Etching, Edition 5, One of a suite of 6 prints editioned in 2015.
Two screen sizes allow us to print full out on Imperial through to 30" x 40" paper sizes on a Marler Elite Quad Crown Vacuum Bed matched with 60" x 40" drying racks.
A free standing Exposure Unit (as opposed to the more common Graphoscreen) enable us to create superior and sharper screens stencils for fine work.
Screens with mesh counts from 31T through to 120T give flexibility on thick or thin ink deposits.
We use the best quality water based inks giving the choice of matt or satin finish and include fluorescents, metallics, varnish as well as diamond dust .
