Traditional printmaking techniques like drypoint or etching enables an artist or print maker to print a certain amount of prints (edition) from a handmade plate. The plates are inked and the ink is transfered from either the surface (relief printmaking e.g. woodcut or linocut) or the incised lines (intaglio printmaking e.g. etching or drypoint) onto paper using a printing press.
In drypoint printmaking an image is incised into a plate with a hard-pointed needle. Traditionally the plate was copper or zinc, but today plexi-glass is commonly used.
