If you're interested in non-toxic fine art printmaking, the Pronto-Plate 5000 is the solution you've been waiting for!
Pronto-Plates are the least expensive, most efficient option for direct-to-plate printing in smaller offset printing applications. Commercial printers and in-plant printing departments with small offset printing presses can be on press in minutes. Designers, desktop publishers, and in-house graphics departments can easily output their designs onto Pronto-Plates and bring them to a local printer to run.
Half the price of metal plates (and competitive with the cost of silver-based plates), Pronto-Plates offer savings of up to 88 percent over metal plate technology, and 58 percent over Silvermaster by eliminating hardware, harmful chemicals, and consumables such as developers, fixers, film negatives, masking, plate cleaners, and plate etches.
Other Pronto-Plate benefits include:
What's more, Pronto-Plates can be output from the HP LaserJet5000 (the least expensive laser printer in its class) for beautiful runs on press.

Pronto plates are extremely versatile - your image can be drawn with acrylic floor wax, crayons, ball point pens, sharpies allowing for a range of mark making. They can be be easily layered for color printing. They can be sent through a laser printer for photographic images. They resist scumming though can be run under a faucet prior to printing to remove surface "dust" - great plates / very affordable.

It is great to be able to order this awesome product from overseas (NZ) and still save money on buying the same product domestically. I will certainly be using Blick again.
By Erika the Teaching Artist
I recently took a Pronto plate printing class and now I'm super excited about this process. Its so much easier and cheaper than most other forms of printmaking. These plates are great. They do what theyre supposed to do. They're also cheaper than where I was getting them before and I don't have to cut them to printer size this way. Woo-hoo!
Great product, I will be buying again

We used the pronto paper to litho on Clay. It was mostly successful. I couldn't answer specific questions, i.e. does it matter what side you use? Since some results were good and some not. A basic instruction sheet or instructions on your site would remove some of my students doubts.
