Relief prints (linoleum, woodblock) are created by carving away areas of a flat plate with gouges, chisels and knives. The cut areas allow the white of the paper to show. The flat surface of the block is inked so that this area produces the image. Woodcuts can be printed by using the etching press or by hand-rubbing the paper. In the case of multi-block color relief prints, a registration jig is used to ensure that each plate is in the correct alignment with the paper to record the different colors in the right spots.
