The Artform of Printmaking
Printmaking is the form of creating art by technical processes using ink. For those not familiar with printmaking as an art, if you ever tried linoleum in school, than you've tried the simplest of the printmaking processes. Much of the beauty of printmaking comes from the laborious technique and effects that can only be achieved in the traditional arts in these forms.

The four divisions of printmaking:

(1) Relief. Ink sits on the raised surfaces and is transferred to paper. Examples, woodcut,  linoleum and colograph…
(2)Intaglio. Ink sits in surfaces below the surface of the plate. Examples, Etching, engravings, dry point petterpetterpetter.deviantart.…
(3) Planography. Inks sit on a flat surface, by chemical means. Examples, lithographs and monotypes…
(4)Serigraphy or silkscreen. Involves screen stencils in which ink passes through the open pores of the screen onto printed area…

This does not include all printmaking processes, but gives a brief overview.
