It is one of the most complicated and expensive types of printing. However, there is no other technique that creates a raised effect on paper with as much depth, clarity, and color precision as engraving does. The effect is both eye-grabbing and sophisticated. No matter how long engraving keeps us waiting with its lengthy lead-times, all of the ladies at Lion in the Sun have an ongoing love affair with engraving!
For fun, we made of list of some of our favorite engraving facts. Enjoy!
