Not quite satisfied with the cards and gift wrap you see in stores? Want to create something one-of-a-kind that’ll impress your friends and family? Feeling especially crafty? With the Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plates, you can create an endless array of monoprinted designs that’ll have everyone asking, “how’d you do that?!”

Great for people of all ages, the Gel Printing Plate gives craft enthusiasts a foundation for creating endless unique designs using a wide variety of mediums. Kids or adults can simply lay the plate on a flat surface, use a roller to apply the desired paint color (or colors), add a stencil or other element for cool texture, then cover the whole thing with a piece of paper, cardboard, or fabric, and press down. Once you peel everything away you’ll be left with the seriously cool pattern on the one plain old white paper.

Acrylic paint works best with the gelatin-like plate, which is strong, durable, and remarkably easy to clean and store. Everything washes off easily with baby wipes or soap and water, and the clear plastic film strips and clam-shell packaging make for simple and safe storage. Since washing up is such a stress-free process, professional and amateur artists alike can enjoy the luxury of trying and testing different monoprinting methods and materials without being hindered by a lengthy cleanup.

From gift tags and greeting cards to planner pages, wrapping paper, and more, the Gel Printing Plate can give life, color, and texture to anything you create. Perfect for kids, tweens, teens, and adults, users can even shake things up by incorporating outside elements to your printed designs! Bubble wrap, string, leaves, flowers, and newspaper are all fun ways to add extra dimensions to your art.

Offered in a variety of sizes and shapes, the Gel Printing Plate helps artists of all levels unlock their creative potential. For monoprinting protégés, the company also offers a Student Printing Plate Kit—perfect for kids and beginners—that comes with one 5- by 5-inch Student Gelli Plate, a brayer, and two stencils.

The Gel Printing Plate from Gelli Arts is a fantastically versatile artistic tool that allows artists of all ages to play and print to their heart’s content.
