Printing multiple plates requires good registration so this is the system I’m using for this piece. First I placed a sheet of paper, cut to the finished size, underneath the Plexiglass that protects the press bed. One right angle of matte board is taped down, away from where the paper will be placed. A second right angle of matte board will be butted against the first. The inked plate will be positioned against this second right angle and then the cardboard will be carefully removed. Paper is lined up in reference to the sheet under the Plexiglass. I find that this works pretty well and gives me consistent registration.

  1. I am sure I am being a bit thick, but can you explain why two right angles are used instead of just one? Thank-you!
