Wikipedia

  1. Planographic printing

    Planographic printing means printing from a flat surface, as opposed to a raised surface (as with relief printing) or incised surface (as with intaglio printing). Lithography and offset lithography are planographic processes that rely on the property that water will not mix with oil. The image is created by applying a tusche (greasy substance) to a plate or stone. (The term lithography comes from litho, for stone, and -graph to draw.) Certain parts of the semi-absorbent surface being printed on can be made receptive to ink while others (the blank parts) reject it.

  1. planographic printing

    Planographic printing is a printing technique where the printing and non-printing areas are on the same level. The design or text to be printed is neither raised above nor depressed below the surface of the printing plate. Instead, it relies on the principle that oil and water do not mix, as the design area of the plate attracts the oil-based ink and repels water, while the non-printing area does the opposite. This method is used in lithography and offset printing.
