- Relief printing
Earlier Established Forms
- found: Web. 3 (stereotype: a solid metal duplicate of a relief printing surface made by pressing a molding material (as wet paper pulp, plaster of paris, clay, or flong) against it to make a matrix, then pouring molten metal into the matrix to make a casting which is sometimes faced with a harder metal to increase durability)
- found: Bookman's glossary, 1983: stereotype, stereo (letterpress duplicate plates made by molding type pages in a suitable material using a matrix. Molding the matrix from the original type form is followed by casting of duplicate relief plates in lead. Some rubber and plastic plates are made using similar principles; others are made using photographic processes.)
- found: Libn. gloss.: stereotype (a metal printing plate carrying a printing surface in relief, made by pouring stereotype metal into a paper-mache or plaster of paris mould of the original type, line block, or very coarse half-tone.)
