Prepare wood blocks for printing using the laser cutter located in the AS220 Labs. Then head over to the printshop where you will print the plates on the etching press. This is a great opportunity to learn what a laser cutter can do for your work. Photographs, text, and fine line drawings can all be successfully printed from a woodblock!
Please download the design template for laser engraving your design.
