I actually have taken David Hoptman's nomenclature and call them
Polymer Photogravure, for clarity. 'Gravure' from my understanding, is
the only actual term implying a specific process derived from copper
plates, but I have no references to cite other than hearsay to back

Jack, I have been calling one copper plate photogravure and the other
polymer plate photogravure. If this is not correct, I would be happy to hear
what terms should be used.

with calling them "photo gravures"?
The craft of making copper photo gravure plates is more complex and
offers many more ways of manipulating the image. It is an
accomplishment to make a good copper image. Anyone who has mastered
the copper process would want to keep the historical term "photo
gravure" for their work and not see a new process that relies on a
manufactured plate that streamlines the process claim the same name.
