Complementing your press, your skills, your processes. 

The difference is in the detail

By focusing on the smallest production details, our team can help you achieve the very best printing results. What may look like small differences in types of adhesives or foam, can lead to significant variations in print quality. Together, we will select the perfect choice from our broad assortment of plate mounting solutions.


01Perfect register

The correct thickness of your plate mounting solution is critical in achieving precise registration for every motif. That's why we place so much emphasis on using the highest quality raw materials and following the most precise production processes.


02Accurate results

As part of a high-quality packaging design, customers expect dense solids and fine screens, yet print defects like pinholing or dot gain remain common issues. Our plate mounting solutions offer a variety of foam hardness levels for optimal results no matter the print design.


03Reliable plate adhesion

Undisturbed print runs and high-quality results can only be achieved when plate edges don't lift during printing. Reliable adhesion is influenced by a number of factors, from the thickness or condition of plates to the manufacturing environment itself. It's also important to consider plate mounting processes and types of adhesives to ensure high performance on press. Our experts will advise you on what considerations must be taken into account to create a reliable bond.
