Instead of film positives and exposing screens made of dot patterns, Cone invented a system of gradated shades of UV absorbing inkjet-ink & software that print the image directly to the surface of a photopolymer plate at a higher resolution of 2880 dots per inch. These ten multi-overlapping inkjet-inks produce tens of thousands of gray levels. These gray levels are successively less and less sensitive to UltraViolet light and the plate is successively more and more resistant to being exposed. That's a beautiful marriage of inks and substrate that produces an unusually long and smooth tonal range for photogravure and results in a print that can rival the smoothness of platinum printing.
Detail is incredible. There is significant shadow and highlight definition, both not typical to the medium. A very long tonal range extends from a very good and easy to wipe black to highlights or plate margins that also wipe cleanly. There doesn't appear to be a visible grain if it is not in the image file. In your studio you can ink these plates with either oil-based or water-based intaglio inks. A complete instructions will be sent to you to prepare your image file as well as our suggestions for your intaglio studio workflow once you receive the plate.
