  • 3.  Definition The art of preparing etched plates, especially metal plates,from which designs and pictures are printed Advantage the finished look is very good Disadvantage it takes ages to produceHAND: ETCHING
  • 4.  DefinitionA print making technique that is used on relief surfaces It is created by using a sharp knife, v shaped chisel orgougeHAND: LINOCUT
  • 5.  The ink is applied directly to the surface to be printed. A roller or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil,forcing or pumping ink past the threads of the woven mesh inthe open areas. It is also known as Screen Printing, silkscreen, seriography,and serigraphHAND: SCREEN PRINT
  • 6.  Definition An image is carved into wood, in Europe most commonlyused is beech wood. Advantage quick and easy to produce Disadvantage hard to engrave small textHAND: WOODCUT
  • 7.  Lithography is where you use a stone to print on a smoothsurface. Invented in 1796 Can be used to print text or artwork onto paper or anothersuitable materialHAND: LITHOGRAPHY
  • 8.  Letterpress is the oldest form of printing. In this method, a surface with raised letters is inked andpressed to the surface of the printing substrate to reproducean image in reverse. Typically, metal type has been used butother possibilities include carved wood or stone blocks. letterpress was the predominant printing method for 500years.MECHANICAL: LETTERPRESS
  • 9.  Gravure is a printing method in which an image is applied to aprinting substrate by use of a metal plate mounted on acylinder. Unlike other processes, gravure uses a depressed orsunken surface for the desired image. The image to bereproduced is etched into the metal plate, sometimes with theuse of a laser . The metal plate is bathed in ink during theprocess and then wiped clean before application to thesubstrate.MECHANICAL: GRAVURE
  • 10.  a photographic reproduction of written, printed, or graphicwork Using a photocopier to create an exact copy of a document orartwork.DIGITAL: PHOTOCOPYING
  • 11.  Laser printing: A printer that uses a laser to produce an imageon a rotating drum before electrostatically transferring theimage to paper.DIGITAL: LASER PRINTING
  • 12.  Inkjet printing is a type of computer printing that creates adigital image by propelling droplets of ink onto paper. Inkjetprinters are the most commonly used type of printer,[1] andrange from small inexpensive consumer models to very largeprofessional machines that can cost tens of thousands ofdollarsINKJET PRINTING
