KF 95 letterpress plates -Unexposed


SKU: PPKF95 Category:


This plastic-backed letterpress plate has a transparent plastic-backing for mounting on a Standard Boxcar Base. You can cut all these plates with scissors. If purchasing unexposed KF95 plastic-backed polymer plates, you’ll also want to purchase our Boxcar film adhesive to adhere your plates to your base.

  • for use on the Standard Boxcar Base
  • this is the plate we use at Boxcar Press (with our Heidelberg Cylinders, Vandercooks, and Windmills)- we love it.
  • 67 Durometer, good for fine lines down to .25pt and dots 1 pt thick. The lines will hold up under deep impressions with this plate.
  • When washed out, background is clear and relief is light yellow.
  • We recommend this plate for fine press book artists who use smaller serif fonts as the hardness of this plate is good for holding serifs.
  • recommended for designs with small point serif text.
  • with harder durometer, the KF95 plate may dry out, become brittle, and curl quicker than softer plastic backed plates (expected life of plate is 9-12 months with proper care).
