Hallsands collagraph print by Mike Glanville. A Collagraph print is created using a collage printmaking technique. The collagraph plate is printed the same way as an etching plate, but the process also includes the basic principle of relief printing. A collagraph can be printed either as intaglio or relief. The term collagraph refer to a collage board where the materials are assembled on a flat base or plate (matrix) to form a relief block with different surface levels and textures.
