  • Plate Output

    Hey PrintPlanet Folk!
    We are in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California, and the company that used to output plates for us has closed.
    Does anyone know of a “Service Bureau” type place around here that will output plates from an electronic file?
    Our largest plate size is about 29" x 22"; we can cut down from a larger size plate if necessary.
    We only make a few plates a year.


    Peace to the PrintPlanet!

    Why not search the LA area (lots of printers) for a company to use, and then have the plates shipped to you?

      Hey Alibryan;
      Although there are “lots of printers” in our area, LA would be fine. Is there someone you recommend? Google has been absolutely no help on this, anywhere in the country.
      Please let me know. Thanks.

      Print Embellishment Goes
      Straight To The Bottom Line

      InfoTrends reported that interviews with more than 100 print customers demonstrated an appetite and willingness to pay premiums of 24% to 89% for special effects, over CMYK-only printing. They also indicated embellishment could apply to a significant portion of their work. Embellishment options can include hot foil stamping, spot gloss UV, embossing, debossing, letterpress, diecut shapes, lamination, duplex, triplex, gold foil, silver foil, copper foil, white foil, black foil, clear foil, etching, and laser cutting techniques.
