Original Art Prints are printed by hand in our very own studio. These prints are from hand carved linocut relief prints with original designs from Cher Kaufmann. The ink is custom mixed for each printing, applied and hand pressed into the paper using a glass or wooden brayer in a circular motion to ensure even ink application. Special paper is used in hand printing since mechanical printing presses are not used. These prints take time to carve, print and dry (up to 10 days with some inks). They may have small imperfections in the print process or other unique indications that an actual human printed it. Take this as a sign that yours was touched by the actual creator and has a bit of the spark from the artist shining through.
