Through time, engraving has endured as the symbol of excellence for stationery, invitations, or other communications of import. It arose in the 15th century via a process referred to as intaglio. First used by silversmiths to proof intricate designs, engraving was soon adopted by fine artists as a unique form of expression. Artists and their patrons marveled at the fine detail. Moreover, they admired the 3D effect created when the paper was permanently indented with every element in the design. The work had texture, substance, and quality.
Today's engraving methods involve etching an image onto a copper plate, which is then mounted on the press with a matching counter. The image is transferred from plate to paper using 4000 pounds per square inch of pressure. The result is a finely detailed, raised image on the paper's surface.
