Process in Visuals Example of printing lightest color first
Registration • In order for colors to print directly on top of one another , we use a registration process • The linoleum is placed in the center cut out and the paper is lined up with white corner lines.
You will need to print more than enough prints to allow for registration problems.
Print the forth, or last color on all prints. Often the last color is black
