What is Lithography?
Lithography Print is generally perceived to be a higher quality, and is a specialist form of printing working with metal plates on which the image areas are worked using a greasy substance so that the ink will adhere to them by, while the non-image areas are made ink-repellent.
They can be used to print text or artwork onto paper or other suitable material.
