Letterpress Plates Made for Printers at Ajalon


Keeping the traditions of letterpress alive, Invitations by Ajalon is pleased to announce their entrance into the letterpress plate making market. Combining the vintage mechanics of a Heidelberg letterpress with the electronic advantages of the digital age has become a reality among most letterpress connoisseurs.

Santa Rosa, CA, January 15, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Producing plates for letterpresses using computerized technologies and advanced plate making machines has just gotten easier. Operating an Anderson and Vreeland plate maker and servicing the plate making needs of letterpress printers around Sonoma County, Invitations by Ajalon has become the local authority in the letterpress plate making process.

Moving from the traditional letterpress style of moveable type face plates, 21st century innovations have allowed for a reviving move toward photopolymer plates. Letterpress plates are created using digital technologies, exposed to ultra violet light, and then washed with tap water. “While their creation still requires a level of craftsmanship and mechanical skill, producing letterpress plates through digital means offers a new level of versatility and design unmatched by other methods” comments David Walrath, co-owner.

While owning a functional letterpress is an endeavor on its own, having access to the equipment needed to create letterpress plates is rather difficult and expensive. Servicing the needs of the letterpress community, Invitations by Ajalon skillfully designs and produces letterpress plates.

Invitations by Ajalon is a letterpress wedding invitation subsidiary of Ajalon Printing and Design and has been operating in northern California’s beautiful Sonoma County wine country for over 50 years.
