The engraving process uses a copper plate with the image etched into the surface, which is then completely coated with a water-based ink from a roller and fountain. The excess is removed from the surface, leaving the ink in the etched areas; then the paper is stamped into the die with tremendous force to adhere the ink to the surface of
the paper.

The result is a very detailed image that is both visually sharp and physically present on the surface of the paper. The engraving process is the mark of the finest quality, guarantees an original document, is laser friendly, and has the lowest environmental impact of any printing method.
