So what is lino printing? Lino printing is considered a traditional relief printmaking method and is often referred to as lino cutting. In this technique, a design is carved into a linoleum block. The uncarved, raised surface (relief) is then inked using a brayer and printed onto paper or fabric with the aid of a baren.
