Polyester Lithography plates were developed forcommercial offset printing, and rather than using the "greasy” principle for creating ink-holding marks, they may be imaged with any water-proof material that will stick to the plate during printing.
Polyester lithography involves creating an image on a polyester plate using water-proof substances such as Sharpie markers, Future floor wax, litho crayons, copier toner, ball point pen, finger prints, etc.
Polyester plates, also called "pronto plates,” contain itty-bitty pores. By covering those pores with an image created using ball point pens, Sharpies, etc., you create an area that will repel water and accept ink..
