Cape Fear Press is a privately owned contemporary photogravure and photo-etching printmaking studio located in Southeast North Carolina. Jennifer Page, the owner of CFP is an artist dedicated to non toxic, less toxic and technical innovations in the field of fine art photo etching and photogravure on copper. Cape Fear Press formulated the Puretch Photopolymer etching process for fine art photo etching. Puretch is a high resolution photopolymer etch resist for traditionally etched metal plate intaglio printmaking, PCB photo circuit boards and jewelry. Cape Fear Press has also tested and distributes the new Phoenix Gravure carbon tissue for photogravure. Cape Fear Press was established in 2001 and has been supplying Puretch Photopolymer to artists since then. Puretch is the ideal high-res halftone resist for combining digital imagery with traditional plate working and etching techniques all within the same plate
