Printing method whose image carriers are level surfaces with inked areas separated from noninked areas by chemical means. Planographic printing includes lithography, offset lithography and spirit duplicating.
A process of printing from a flat or plane surface, such as is done in Lithography. to top
As suggested by the name, planographic printing includes all those techniques in which the ink is neither pressed down on the paper nor raised above the surface of the paper, but lies in a flat plane on the surface. In planographic techniques the pressure of the press, if indeed there is a press at all, is generally much lighter than with relief or intaglio printing.
the process of printing from a surface on which the printing areas are not raised but are ink-receptive (as opposed to ink repellent)
This method includes lithography and screenprinting. There is no plate mark and the ink seems to sit on the surface of the paper, deposited smoothly, without pressure.
A method of printing, such as lithography, by which image carriers are on level surfaces with inked areas separated from noninked areas by chemical means.
Planographic printing means printing from a flat surface, as opposed to a raised surface (as with relief printing) or incised surface (as with intaglio printing). The process utilizes the property that water will not mix with oil. The process produces a lithograph or offset lithograph by applying a rusche (greasy substance) to a metallic plate.
