Printing plate

A printing plate is a printing form which is manufactured as a flat plate and is initially applied to a cylinder for the printing process. Printing plates are used in offset printing (offset plate) and in flexo printing (flexo printing form). The term plate is also used in flexo printing. This is a term which originally meant metal or plastic formes in letterpress printing.
