Phenolic Plate: Phenolic is a hard resin that is used in pots and pans and in other products. The resin is durable and can withstand many uses. They are also designed to resist corrosion and water damage. Phenolic bed plates are sometimes considered a better option than steel plates because they don’t rust over time and they are lighter.
Steel Plate: A good alternative to phenolic bed plates, this steel is very strong and durable and can withstand several uses without wearing down. A great option for etching, engraving and more, this steel bed plate will serve you well and help you with whatever printmaking techniques that you need.
