I suppose they should be call polymer photo gravure or photopolymer gravure
or polyphotomergravvytypes, but those little plastic plates are sure fun to
play with. The fact that they are non-toxic is a big plus for me!  I ordered
a press.

As long as those photopolymers are based on monomers like acrylamide etc.,
the "non-toxicity" seems at least questionable...

  ......I did
spend some time with a Ms. Diaz  (first name escapes me) who was doing
copper gravures in 4x5 sizes, lovely images. We commiserated together about
people calling plastic gravures "Photo Gravures."



"plastic gravures"...  do you mean polymer plate gravures?    What's wrong
with calling them "photo gravures"?
