I know this is a late response to your query, but I hope it helps you or anyone else.Yes, lino is a good way to print solid areas of colour. I also use type-high blocks of wood that I get my local hardware to cut to shape for me. It’s hard to get things to exactly type-high, so best practice is to make sure they’re slightly under and then pack them up with boxboard or paper or anything even and to size.With lino you’re always going to need packing, and if you want to use lino regularly, then you’d be best off measuring the thickness of the lino and then getting a baseboard made from MDF that is the difference between the lino thickness and type high. That way you can set up the board and stick on the lino, just like with polymer plate.I hope that helps. Lino is great because it’s relatively cheap, prints fabulously, and you can carve all sorts of designs on it without needing to process it photographically like polymer plate.
