A print can be described as a transfer of text or image to paper or choice of medium. There are a variety of different printing techniques used to re-create art works.
A lithograph is a print made by drawing on limestone with wax crayons, applying ink onto the stone and printing the image onto paper.
Serigraphy, also known as silk screening, screen printing or serigraph printing, is a stencil-based printing process in which ink is forced through a fine screen onto the paper beneath. Screens were originally made of silk, but they are now made of finely woven polyester or nylon.
Etching is a printmaking technique that uses chemical action to produce incised lines in a metal printing plate which then hold the applied ink and form the image.
