Print Care

All prints use forest friendly paper and environmentally friendly water based/water soluble inks. Take care to not get the artwork wet, as this will cause damage. Any kind of friction on the artwork will also cause damage. Each print is precious and to be loved with care. For Customer help please email: info@ei8htycats.com as soon as possible.

Printing Methods

Linocut printing
The printing plate is lino (linoleum, as in the floor covering) that gets carved into. The lino is then inked with water soluble ink, and paper placed over it. Pressure is applied with a printing press or by hand, typically by using a metal spoon to transfer the ink to the paper. 
Colours are processed separately via each master (colour separated layers) lino -this is achieved by further carving. The smooth surface of the lino doesn't add texture to the print, but prints are unique due to the hand made nature of the process.
Screen printing
Made popular by Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein in the 1960's with their iconic images. Screen printing is a technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer water soluble ink onto a substrate, except in blocked areas made impermeable. Colours are processed separately via each master (colour separated layers) mesh.
Risograph printing
Sustainable, environmentally friendly spot printing process, utilising soy or rice based water soluble inks. Like the other printing techniques, colours are processed separately via a master (sheet of bamboo paper for each colour separated layer) template. The underlying technology is very similar to that of screen printing. The original image file is sent to the machine and it is burnt onto a master, the master is then wrapped around a print drum. This drum then rotates at high speed which pushes the ink through the screen and onto the paper as it is sent through the machine. The nature of this process can produce a unique feel.
Lithograph printing A method of offset printing, in which the masters (colour separated layers) are metal plates and transferred (offset) to rubber blankets or rollers and then to paper.
