*Fine art printmaking involves the creation of a master plate from which one or multiple images are made. The artist chooses a surface as the plate – linoleum, styrofoam, metal, cardboard, stone or any one of a number of materials. The artist then prepares the printing plate by cutting, etching or drawing an image onto the plate. Ink is applied and the paper is pressed onto the plate either by hand or by way of a hand-run printing press. The finished print is pulled from the plate.
