Printmaker is who makes artworks by printing, normally on paper, producing multiples copies of the same piece. Woodcut is the earliest printmaking technique. Engravers, as Albrecht Dürer, cut the artworks into the surface of a metal plate. Engraving was developed in Germany in the XV century.

Other printmaking techniques are lithography, etching, drypoint, aquatint, mezzotint and collographs.
