Polymer Photogravure

Polymer Photogravure is a printmaking technique that falls under the Intaglio process of printmaking, which means creating an image lower than the surface level of the plate. In this case, an image is exposed onto a Polymer plate, inked and printed. The subtle grooves in the plate hold the ink which is the essence of intaglio – the opposite of relief printing (linocut, woodcut, wood engraving).
