Plate is a metal sheet carrying an image to be reproduced using a printing press.
An illustration (s) printed on a separate sheet of paper (usually heavy and better quality than the text pages) and added to the book during the binding process (pl, pls.).
the unit of a printing press from which stamps are actually printed. 19th and early 20th century stamps were produced from flat plates. Beginning in the mid-1920s most stamps were produced from curved (180º) plates that were used in pairs on a rotary press. Still more recently, many stamps have been printed from cylindrical plates. A plate is sometimes also known as a printing base.
the surface from which a print is made and that bears the image to be reproduced. A plate may be made of metal, rubber, synthetic rubber, photo polymer, or plastic, and it is treated to carry an image to the printing surface on the press.
also known as printing plate, a plate carrying an image or typeset page for use in making multiple copies of that image
A flat sheet of metal that holds the image reproduced during printing
A sheet of metal of specific thickness which is photo-sensitive on one side. During platemaking, a negative is placed over the plate and held in place by vacuum; light strikes the photo-sensitive material on the plate where the negative is clear; when the plate is processed, the areas struck by light rub up and become ink-receptive. This is the "image" on the plate. The area without image is water-receptive.
A sheet of metal used for intaglio prints. The size of a print is sometimes measured by the area within visible plate marks.
Metal or paper material that carries the image for offset printing.
See metal plate.
Reproduction of type and images on metal, plastic, rubber, or other material to form a printing surface.

A thin metal sheet precoated with a light sensitive coating. The image to be printed is burned onto the plate from negatives using a vacuum frame

The application of a thin layer of one metal over another. Rhodium is commonly used over white gold and platinum because of its beauty and shine.
A thin flat piece of metal
In lithographic printing an image is etched into a 'plate'
Used in England and on the Continent when referring to articles made of precious metals. Used in the United States to mean electro-silverplate.
Short for printing plate. Generally a thin sheet of metal whose surface is treated so that only the printing image remains when processed.
The basic image-carrying surface in a printing process.
Tthe object whose surface is altered to create areas that will and will not transfer ink to the surface to be printed. Some examples of plates are a block of wood, a piece of linoleum, a slab of stone, or a sheet of metal.
An image that goes through a different process to the rest of the book, and is often in a cluster of other plates for economic reasons.
The actual image medium that ink passes through on press rollers.
The raised surface, usually of photopolymer or rubber, which transfers the ink to print an image.
Any image transfer medium except a type form.
(1) Any relief, plano graphic, or intaglio-printing surface. (2) An illustration in a book printed separately from the text and usually on different paper.
photosensitive plastic or metal material that is used in offset printing to transfer the image of a page to the offset duplicator.
A full page illustration with the reverse side being blank or without text. Sometimes a thin sheet of tissue called a "tissue guard" is placed in between the plate and the opposite page. In many older books the plates were simply "tipped-in," glued-in after all the signatures were sewn together. There is always the risk with antiquarian books that a tipped-in plate has become separated and lost from the binding, or that it was even deliberately removed by a breaker. When examining old books, it is prudent to count and compare the plates against the "List of Illustrations" found immediately after the Table of Contents page.
(noun) Curved or cylindrical shape carrying printing impression, for use on a printing press.
A special page containing an illustration or other extra information.
The basic printing unit on a press used to produce stamps. Early stamps were printed from flat plates. Curved or cylindrical plates are used for most modern stamps. See also Cylinder and Sleeve.

A metal or paper light-sensitive sheet. It holds the image to be printed. The image gets on the plate by a photographic process. During printing, the image on the plate picks up ink, which is then indirectly transferred to paper.
Rubber or metal image carrier that transfers ink to the printing surface.
Reproduction of type or cuts in metal, plastic, rubber, or other material, to form a plate bearing a relief, planographic or intaglio printing surface.
Armor constructed of large sheets of metal hammered or otherwise formed into the shape of the wearer.

The master device that bears the image to be printed. Printing plates can be made from metal, plastic, or paper.

Bullion form of metal.
A thin object (plate) made of either metal or paper that is light sensitive and causes an image to be transferred to paper while on a printing press. The image is burned onto the plate by the use of high intensity light.
