Etching Press in a print shop.

Etching Press in a print shop.

Etching presses are used in printmaking to produce etchings, woodcuts, and collagraph prints. For example, when working in the printmaking process of woodcut, the artist will carve into a plate made of wood to make an image. The artist will then roll ink onto the wood block, lay the block on the press bed, lay down a sheet of paper, and roll it through the press. As pressure is added to the plate, the ink is transferred onto the paper and the print is made.
