Direct to plate printing is a fairly new technology that eliminates the use of film in printing. Traditional methods of printing, called offset lithography printing, produced film on an image setter and used it to make a metal printing plate. The plate then went on a printing press to make the printed impressions. With direct to plate printing, the printing plate is produced directly from a computer, eliminating the need for film.
