Toyobo steel-backed photopolymer plate - 0.73mm thickness
This standard steel-backed photopolymer plate is perfect for most stamps and textures. It has enough depth to get some dimensionality to your stamps, without being too deep so it works well for handprints, footprints, pawprints, etc.
Photopolymer plates are UV sensitive plates which are used to create stamps from your own artwork, drawings, fingerprints, handwriting, or photos. You layer your artwork and photopolymer plate in a exposure clamp kit, and expose it to UV light. This hardens any areas on the plate which the UV light can reach. After exposure, you rinse the plate in water, and with a brush you remove any uncured parts - leaving you with a perfect stamp.

Use good quality metal sheers or a guillotine to cut the plate to the size you need.

- A6 - 2 pieces. Each piece is approximately 105 x 148 mm (4.125" x 5.875"), so in the pack you get a total of about 310.80 cm2

IMPORTANT - Photopolymer plates are light sensitive until fully cured, and must be stored in their UV-proof package. Work in a room with as little light as possible, and keep away from windows with natural UV light. To light up your workspace, LED lights work well as they don't cure the plate.
