Cosmetics, Beauty / Nail-stamping plates
Spanish term or phrase: soporte de papel
Hi,

I'm translating some product descriptions for a retail website from Spanish (Spain) to British English and am having trouble with a phrase. The product in question is a set of nail-stamping plates. Please see the full sentence below for context.

'Las placas reales están realizados en acero inoxidable y tienen acabado de alto brillo con un soporte de papel.'

Many thanks in advance for your help!
