    Andrew,

    I live in Victoria, and have ordered solarplates from Dan Smith in Seattle. They are Toyobo Printight KM73 plates, which are carried by Williamson Printing (http://www.williamson.ca/). There is a Williamson office in Richmond, might be worth contacting them to see if they will sell small quantities, etc.

    The Center for Photography at Woodstock has finally released their 2009 catalog with course descriptions and workshop presenter's bios. Here's the photogravure one given by Lothar Osterberg as promised:

    quality of polymer gravure and workshps

    Whitey, I took a photopolymer gravure class in March, 2010 in NH taught by Mark Nelson and Paul Taylor. Paul does fine-art copper-plate photogravure at his studio (http://www.renaissancepress.com/). Mark developed the precision digital negative (PDN) system and also teaches platinum/paladium printing ( ender100@aol.com ).

    Though I can't say they were exactly up to photogravure quality, they were pretty darn close and I don't think either Mark or Paul would be teaching the method if they didn't believe in the quality of the images.

    We were using Toyobo KM-73 plates. Mark's digital negative (in our case, positives) method really gives you control over your tonal range, which is where I see many photo-polymer images lacking.

    I understand that they both plan to offer more workshops. I suggest you contact them if you're interested.

    difference between Toyobo and Solar Plates

    Rdkorn, Andrew, et al. Just to clarify, Toyobo Printight KM-73 plates and Solar Plates are both made with photopolymer materials, but are two different products. Dan Smith does carry solar plates, but not the KM-73 plates. There are other US sources for both.

    I get my plates (km73) at Boxcar press. Nice folks.

    Fredda: Thanks for the workshop tip. I'll look them up.

    It is nice to see people discussing the differences in photogravure and photopolymer. I added a page to my site recently explaining the differences in the photo intaglio processes. Please check it out if you are interested.

    anyone have any success with direct to plate printing? or know of any information... I really love the idea of skipping the positive in the process.. I see some are using it successfully... But as to how they are doing it I have know knowledge..

    I have had it... but I can't find it... crap..

    BUT I can refer you to Inger Lise Rasmussen - a Danish female graphic printer, who has used this technique since the beginning and who was a close friend to Eli Ponsaing...

    Maybe she can help you here...
