Relief Printmaking Print Registration : Relief Printmaking Registration Testing


Now I’ve re-inked the block of wood in a deeper
color, so I’m going to test my registration. I will, basically what I’m attempting to do
is place this piece of paper over this block in exactly the same place I initially had
it. In order to do that I’m going to go back to my jig and my registration marks. So first
I’m going to line up my piece of paper onto the initial outline that I have. This is not
a good measure, I want to definitely use my registration marks as my exact measure. This
is just to help me get into position. Now, I need to match up my registration marks perfectly
in order for this to work. So I’m going to move this paper over until I can see that
that mark matches up perfectly. That it looks like one continuous line. I’m going to do
the same thing over here, meaning I need to move this over just a touch. Here, I’m on
mark. Check this again. And when all three of these positions look like a single, continuous
line, then I have pretty well registered my piece of paper and I’m ready to press.
