You need to coat plate with photo sensitive lacquer. Then expose film of what you want to get on plate. Rinse after exposure with suitable developer. You may need stop off at some place. Once image is created on plate, etch with dilute FeCl3. You must have meshed film. i.e. suitable screen of 133 or 150 mesh will give you image. Ink will retain in mesh. For long life, chrome plate after etching.

Sunjay:

What Mr.Payal told you is state of the art, but there is an economical alternative, though more difficult and less precise. See my reply to Avner (letter 13531). This might work for you.
