Gravure Printing

« Back to Glossary Index

Gravure printing—also known as rotogravure printing—is primarily a long-run, high-speed, high-quality printing method used to etch elements into a surface. Like engraving, gravure is a form of intaglio printing that produces fine, detailed images. It works well for CMYK printing where each color of ink is applied by its own cylinder, adding drying steps in between.
