Glossary of Printing Terms:
Platen Press

A type of relief press, where during the printing process, grippers move a sheet of paper from the feedboard to the platen, which is the surface where the print impression is made.

A set of rollers applies ink to the type in a chase on the press bed. The press bed and the platen are pressed together like a clamshell which produces the image on the paper.
