Also called blind embossing or inkless intaglio. A process using an intaglio press to raise an image on a paper surface, producing a three-dimensional effect.
A print with an impression in high relief, that is, with all or part of the image higher than the unmarked areas. Some embossed prints have no color other than that of the paper.
(em·bossed print) NOUN: Raised letters, used to make books accessible for blind people in the early nineteenth century. Embossed print was replaced by Braille in the second half of the nineteenth century.
Image is printed by intaglio process without ink. It results in raised paper.
This technique employs a metallic mold, shape or patterned plate, which is placed beneath the paper being printed, prior to it's being pressed, resulting in a low relief or "raised" pattern in the surface of the paper. The technique may be combined with a variety of printing methods but is typically used with etchings or lithographs. Also known as chasing or stamping.
Uninked relief print in which dampened paper is pressed into recessed areas of a plate to produce a three-dimensional impression.
( glyptographie, cerographie, stereotype,gauffrure, Blinddruck, Blindpressung) Those which contain areas of three dimensions either below or above the surface of the paper.
