Here at The Block Shop within Photocast, we produce, high quality, fine detailed plates for the letterpress printing and hot foiling industries.

The process of chemical etching using our specialised equipment has enabled us to achieve a well-deserved reputation for crisp platemaking, with a quick turnaround, at a good price.

We can provide plates in Magnesium, Zinc or Flexible Polymer. We will help you decide which material and thickness is suitable for your project.

Our clients include artists, universities, bookbinders and restorers, fine letterpress printers, packgaing printers using Braille embossing, tinplate printers/makers, leather goods manufacturers and wheelie bin producers.

If you want to make an impression on something – look no further and give us a call.
