Gel Press for Printing

Have you ever wondered what to do with a gel printing plate? Well wonder no more. This month DCC members received product from Gel Press and we were inspired!

Gel Press is the new brand name of gel printing plates manufactured by POLYGEL.  Polygel is the company that developed the original formula and fabrication process for a permanent gel mono printing plate and they hold the patent. At one time this formula was private labeled with another company. That company is now sourcing the gel elsewhere. Polygel believes strongly in the high quality of its product and launched GEL PRESS to ensure when you purchase a Gel Press brand product, you are purchasing the quality gel plate that is known to perform. Any other gel plate is NOT the original gel. Visit for more information.  Now lets check the following posts for some Gel Press inspiration:
