Printmaking is the process of creating an artwork by transferring ink or paint onto a surface such as paper, card or fabric.

Multiple copies of the same image can be created using this process, each of which contain slight variations making each one unique - this is usually called an 'edition'.

There are many types of printmaking methods and techniques including engravings, woodcuts, etchings, lithographs and screenprints.
