Toray offers Letterpress customers a full line of digital plates. Incorporating a black mask layer onto the Letterpress plate, the digital data can now be imaged directly by a CDI Imager, removing the requirement of film and chemistry and allowing a full digital workflow. When the imaging is completed, the plates are then processed in the traditional way.

The next generation of TORELIEF Photopolymer plate technology has been incorporated into the Toray family of digital letterpress plates. The perfect combination of “CTP Technology” and “TORAY Highpolymer Technology” enables TORELIEF CTP to achieve the highest quality print.
