Inkcups is happy to announce that we have updated our polymer plate-making exposure times for garment tag printing on our website! The new update features a colorful new chart of exposure times for all of our alcohol wash and water wash pad printing plates. After years of testing, the techs at Inkcups have perfected a formula for successfully making photopolymer plates.
This how-to guide will explain each step in the plate-making process. Just follow the instructions for a successful plate-making operation. Exposures time for pad printing plates will vary depending on the exposure unit you are currently using, the times on our website are based on the Autolight-1528 or BPL-1220 exposure units.
The web version of the exposure times is also available in a downloadable PDF document. Print it out and keep it with your exposure unit for reference or use it as a training manual for someone new to the plate-making process.
