Plastic as a printing substrate is relatively inexpensive, easy to cut to size, comes in large sheets, works well through a printing press, and can be printed either face up or down on the paper. The transparency of plastic plates allows for ease of registration.
Plastic plates lend themselves to the monotype processes of rolling ink onto the smooth surface or painting ink on with brushes and wiping ink away in painterly gestures with rags or textured materials and making a very even release of ink to paper either by hand or with the pressure of a printing press.
