I have been wanting to take one of the Printmaking classes at San Francisco Center of the Book, but unfortunately haven;t been able to, so bought a book on the topic and learnt few terms on the topic.
Block Print: Print made from curved block of wood, linoleum, styrofoam, etc.
Collagraph: A print made from a dimensional collaged plate.
Edition: A complete series of identical prints pulled from a single plate.
Ghost Print: A print pulled from the remaining image left on a plate after the first print has been pulled.
Impression: A single image printed on peer, cloth, or other substrate.
Masking: Covering a section of the substrate, the image, or the matrix to prevent contact with ink;masking protects the printing that already exists,so additional printing can be added without covering up the first player.
Matrix: The source of the print-the surface on which printable image exists.
Monoprint: Unique print that is pulled from a ghost plate that has had an additional ink added to it or that was otherwise modified.
Monotype Print: A Unique print that cannot be duplicated.
Original Print: A first-edition print as opposed to a reproduction.
