Marstan Press has launched a plate making service for fellow printers. In January 2018 we upgraded our printing press from B2 to SRA1 format. This meant our old Heidelberg B2 plate-setters had to be replaced and we opted for a B1 Agfa system.
The Agfa Avalon plate maker can process over 60 plates per hour, which is more than to two old ones put together and far outstrips our plate requirements.
Therefore we are able to offer a plate making service. If your plate maker has broken down, and you need some plates made urgently, we can make SRA1 plates for same day collection or next day delivery. A CMYK set is £75+Vat. Discounts are available for bulk or repeat orders.
We use the Agfa plate which is suitable for LED UV printing. Unlike many plates on the market, these plates are rated at a 150,000 impression life cycle.
Other plate sizes are available by prior arrangement.
