Acrylic aquatint and photopolymer etching is also available. The relief studio is equipped for collagraph, lino and woodblock printmaking and the lithography studio is equipped for offset plate and stone lithography. We also have silkscreen equipment to produce photographic and hand cut stencils for screens. There are also possibilities for digital preparation of positives for screen making.
