IrishB_Cubed: Love to know how they made those plates in the first place.
shillyshally: I started my first job in printing just as hot metal was being phased out. I still have a couple of sets of slugs and a few slug boxes. I wish I had kept some of the hand made end papers and more of the line cuts.
Freefight: I can imagine that this is a lot of work, did they have to make those plates every day?
