What are the four main types of printmaking?

There are four main categories of printmaking: relief, intaglio, lithography, and screenprinting. Each color in a print usually requires a separate stone, plate, block, or stencil, and any of these basic processes may be combined in the creation of a finished work.

Keeping this in view, what are the two main types of printmaking?

  • Relief Printing. This is printing from a raised surface.
  • Intaglio.
  • Planography (Lithography) As we have just learned, relief prints are created from a raised surface, and intaglio prints are created from a cut surface.
