Being fickle when it comes to Magnesium and Photopolymer
HOW TO
So lately, I have been printing with photopolymer plates but I have been having some mixed results with text.  I have decided to go with magnesium plates when printing text because I feel it gives me more of a crisp image.  In general, I think that magnesium plates give me a slightly better image so with that said I […]

So lately, I have been printing with photopolymer plates but I have been having some mixed results with text.  I have decided to go with magnesium plates when printing text because I feel it gives me more of a crisp image.  In general, I think that magnesium plates give me a slightly better image so with that said I will be using magnesium plates for all my text and 1 color images.  When I have to register 2 or more colors, I am going to go back to the photopolymer because it is alot easier for me to register the plate allowing me to get a perfect print (I am still having issues with registering magnesium plates so if I ever master registering mag, I probably will use magnesium exclusively).

I am actually going to try a new company for magnesium plates called Owasso Graphic.  With their offer of a free die (not including shipping) what do I have to lose?  I will post about the die quality once I try it out.

Also, as some of you regulars to my site have noticed, I have added a new link called shop.  This is where I will have some of my designs up for sale that you can purchase right online!  Check back often since there will be new designs added weekly.
