Linoleum block printing, more commonly known as lino printing or lino cutting, is a popular form of printmaking. The process involves carving a design into a printing plate using specialised lino cutting tools before inking the plate with a brayer (or hand roller). Once the plate has been sufficiently coated in ink, the print is then transferred to a piece of art paper with firm pressure that’s applied either by hand or using a printing press. Since the printing plate, which is typically a piece of lino or rubber, has a smooth surface that can be inked repeatedly, it allows artists to create high quality prints.
