Hi all, Im trying to get a pantone uncoated colour match for their 'cayenne' colour #18-1651.  It seems all reference to Pantone colour these days are with these fabric numbers, but I want to know how to do a search for the same colour in a pantone colour that I can mix inks to. Any suggestions?See More

polymer plates

I am chasing blank polymer plates so I can get a college in Australia to expose and wash out foe me. I have been using the boxcar press plates with great success, but the shipping to Australia (and tiem) kills me. Im wondering if I can buy a box of the plates as an alternative? Probably, the raw material comes from China, and that would be even better!See More
