215.00 215.00


A4 sized plate with 8” x 10.5” max image size. Includes unprinted plate margins if desired, or trimmed to size.
  • The plates are produced with a proprietary Piezography printer driver producing a fine aquatint.

  • A screen is not used and there is no visible mechanical quality.

  • The direct to print method is fully calibrated to match an image on a calibrated display.

  • You will receive a complete instructions PDF when you complete your order with a template for Photoshop to place your image into, as well as for previewing.

You supply the image and Cone Editions Press produces the plate to send to you for printing in your studio on your own etching press.

Within the maximum plate area you can choose to have the plate trimmed to the image or include a plate margin (unprinted border around the image). The image will cause an impression to be impressed into the paper. The plate margin allows for there to be a border of un-inked paper around the image surrounded by an impression into the paper.

Cone Editions has invented an entirely unique method of producing photogravure plates using a Cone Editions Piezography driven calibration method. They have a unique printer driver that assimilates very fine aquatint. There is no mechanical screening used. The acuity of this system is therefore much finer than traditional methods of making gravure plates. They are able to make photogravure plates from digital images that produce gravure prints that match a calibrated display.

What's Included:


These are the original Solar Plates, otherwise known as Jet Plates, and often as Miraclon plates. They are no longer manufactured and Cone Editions Press maintains a large inventory for its printmaking purposes. They will produce a ready to print plate that can be used with a variety of inks. They are printed by the direct to plate method using a unique Piezography printer driver that assimilates a fine aquatint pattern using a combination of droplet sizes and unordered dithering. They imitate the original aquatint photogravure process. Cone Editions Press maintains several calibrations including for Akua inks and oil based Etching inks. The plates are compatible with both.
