What is Printmaking?

Printmaking describes the process of making artist’s original prints, as opposed to signed limited edition prints, which are in fact merely reproductions of existing artworks made using commercial print processes. Traditionally an original print involves the artist making blocks, plates, stones or stencils which are then hand printed using non-mechanical methods. Prints are frequently made in editions (i.e. a number of identical impressions), and these editions are a fixed number so the buyer knows how many have been produced. These are then signed and numbered by the artist and sometimes titled and dated. Glasgow Print Studio
