A printing process in which a raised surface accepts ink, which is then transferred to paper by direct contact.
Exploits the surface characteristics of almost any material. Traditionally, these particular characteristics have come from the gouging, cutting or carving out of the surface of a wood block, be it fine or coarse-grained. Recently "found" objects such as corroded metal, eroded wood and other natural surfaces, which contain disparate elements, are inked up and brought together in one work. The surface of the print can possibly have variations in surface texture. The inked areas may be raised to accommodate the large textured objects.
The class of reproductive process to which letterpress and woodcuts belong, in which the raised areas of the block or plate are the principle printing surface.
A process of printing in which the non-printed areas have been cut away from a block or plate.
A printing process in which the uncarved areas create the impression. The printing element, usually wood, is inked with a Roller, or other tool. The cut, or incised, areas do not usually print, since they are recessed and are rarely inked. Nonetheless, during a run paper is often pushed into these sunken areas, creating an embossed effect. The recessed areas do print when the printing element is inked in the same manner as an etching plate, with the surface wiped clean, leaving ink in the recesses. In all relief techniques it is the surface of the block that is inked and printed and, given perfect printing, all lines or surfaces will be equally dark. Moderate pressure in the press will emboss the paper to an extent, so the inked design will lie slightly below the uninked surface of the paper.

printing from a plate with raised characters
Printing from a raised surface, such as woodblock or letterpress.
is a type of printing in which the type is raised above the surface of the carrier. Rhythm - is visual movement and repetition that guides the reader.
Printing method whose image carriers are surfaces with two levels having inked areas higher than noninked areas. Relief printing includes block printing, flexography and letter press.
all printing processes in which the non-printing areas of the block or plage are carved or etched away. Inks are applied to the surface and pressed onto paper. This is the reverse of intaglio printing.
A printing technique in which the parts of the printing surface that carry ink are left raised, while the remaining areas are cut away. Woodcuts and linoleum prints (linocuts) are relief prints.
This method includes: Woodcuts, Linocuts, Wood Engravings, (Metal Cut), and (Relief Etching). They all entail removing material so that the remaining raised areas can be inked and printed. The removed areas â€œprint whiteâ€. The amount of detail that can be achieved is relatively low with Woodcut and Linocut but higher with Wood Engraving. There is no plate mark.
A method of printing in which the image carriers have surfaces with two levels with inked areas being higher than noninked areas. Relief printing includes block printing, flexography and letterpress.
A method of printing where the areas to be inked are higher than the non-printing areas. The inked areas are then placed in contact with the material to be printed, transferring the ink from the raised areas to the substrate. See also: flexography; letterpress; relief plate; relief printing.
One of the four major divisions of printmaking. The image is printed from ink on the surface of wood, linoleum, or other flat surface. Nonprinting areas have been cut away.
Printing method, often using a wooden block or a piece of linoleum, where unwanted areas are cut away using knives and gouges leaving the uncarved areas to receive ink.
