Printmaking is a process that typically allows artists to make multiple original works of art. In most cases, the artist creates an image on a matrix made out of metal, stone, wood, or other materials. The matrix is then inked, and the inky image is transferred to a piece of paper, often with a press, to create an original print. Prints can be made using several techniques: monotype/monoprint, intaglio, relief, screenprinting, and lithography. More information on these techniques here.
