We produce our own photopolymer plates for letterpress printing here at Kiss The Paper and offer platemaking services to other printers.


  • We only expose KF95 plates (for standard bases that are 0.875")
  • We expose up to 8.25 x 11"
  • Adhesive backing and clear bag is provided


  • The best files for platemaking are vector based files, so we accept .PDF, .AI and .EPS.
  • Prep your files to be negative ready: everything that you want to print needs to be white and everything you don't want to print needs to be black. Your black needs to be 100% black.
  • No need to flip your negative; please make the files right-reading
  • You can collage multiple images onto one plate to maximize your square inches. Leave a 1/8" to 1/4" margin around your images as well as the perimeter of the plate.
  • All fonts need to be outlined


  • We charge $0.75 per square inch
  • There is no minimum charge
  • Plates will be processed 1-2 business days after receiving negative ready files


  • Please email your order to kissthepaperpress@gmail.com
  • When sending your file please include your mailing address and indicate whether you'd like to pick up your plate(s), ship with regular mail or ship expedited via Canada Post
  • Once we review your files we will send you an invoice; payment must be made before plate processing. We accept e-transfer and PayPal.
