Many years ago, I purchased some used Photographic Ferrotyping Plates
--- the type used to dry photo prints with a glossy surface. They have
proved wonderful. If they cannot be found, you could try the #2B mill
finish Type 304 stainless steel (Catalog # 8983k36). An even better
surface would be the #8 mirror finish (cat #9785k12). Check
McMaster-Carr Supply at www.mcmaster.com

Good Luck.
