This Is Printing, Too!? Surprises Galore Exhibition

You can print regular letters on regular paper, and you can change the color if you want. That’s the extent of regular printing. But if you stretch your imagination, you can print letters that glow or shine, or letters that are bumpy or rough. Embossed letters can be printed, and the printed paper itself might undergo a change in shape.

The methods of producing such effects are called special printing techniques, and the effects they achieve can be truly astounding. Works made by employing special printing techniques can be enjoyed not only with your eyesight, but will appeal to all five of your senses, including your senses of touch and smell.

Come and delight in this exhibition that features works made by using these amazing state-of-the-art special printing techniques.
