Gelatin printing has become quite the rage with mixed media audiences with the development of commercially-available permanent printing plates, such as the Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate
and the Stampendous Creative Palette/Monoprinting Plate. But is there really a difference between the two, with the exception of the price tag? I wanted to know!
Here’s what I found out:
So… to recap:
- The Stampendous plate is less expensive: $21 USD verses $28 USD
- The Gelli Plate is moister or more sticky, to allow for a better lift of the paint.
- The Gelli Plate is softer, so that you can get a more detailed print.
For my money- I’ll stick with the Gelli Plate!
Next, I’ll compare “homemade” gelatin printing recipes.
Thoughts or questions, anyone?

I didn’t know anything about all the gelli plate whoohaa I’ve been hearing lately. Now I KNOW something and it looks like fun. I am very much into creating my own papers for my cards and tags… that is using white water color paper and inks to create my own designs and colors. This works right into that whole thing. Thanks!!
I had heard somewhere (don’t recall where) that you could remove paint with (rubbing) isopropyl alcohol.

There is also a Gel Press plate (brand), which I use. I’ve had no experience with any others, but I adore mine.
I bet you do! The Gel Press is actually the Gelli Arts product I reviewed. The folks who manufactured the Gelli Arts plate lots their contract, so they went ahead and made the SAME formula of plate and started selling it under a new name- Gel Press. Great quality!! #TheMoreYouKnow
