need supplier for photographs engraved to copper plates

I am looking for a supplier that can convert my b&w photos to either simply “K” black plates to do letter press images of photographs on a letterpress. If copper is too expensive can i use rubber plates or ? Who can make these for me from my BW imagery? Attached is an example of a Black plate I found in a salvage yard of an old ad, this is what I want to do with my photographs. Id imagine the line screen for this attached art is no finer than 133 dpi? Thank you.

You can use mag dies or even photopolymer. I get my mag dies from Owosso, they will make copper also, for poly dies everyone uses Boxcar, their contact info is in the yellow pages on this site.
