Technical Handouts

Hi all,

In the past, we have used Kevin Haas's awesome handouts as a resource for several different techniques-silkscreen, photolitho, pronto plates...here's a link to them all: http://www.wsu.edu/~khaas/resources/

Also, I found this handy printmaking dictionary: http://www.graphicstudiodublin.com/gsd/printing/printing_techniques.html

Here's an example:

BAT or Bon a tirer is a French term meaning 'good to pull'. When the image has been finalised through proofing, the final proof is marked BAT and signed by the artist. The BAT is then used as a reference when printing the full edition.

In case you were wondering...
