Printing or a Print is a graphic art form conceived by the artist to be realized as an original work of art rather than a copy of a work in another medium.

Prints are produced by drawing or carving an image onto a hard surface (known as a matrix) such as a wood block, metal plate, or stone. The transfer of ink is affected by

  • the wetting properties of the printing substrate,
  • the surface properties of the materials involved,
  • the properties of the paper,
  • the viscosity of the ink,
  • the printing pressure,
  • the printing speed and
  • the shape of the cells and their filling level.
