Lino printing is the printing technique where you cut and carve a motif on a linoleum block and then print your motif on paper or textiles with lino printing ink. The paint, also called lino ink, comes in several colors and you can print several layers with different colors. For lino printing on fabric, a special color is used that withstands washing and wear.

When you then print your design on paper, it is important to choose the right type of paper. Preferably choose a coarser paper with high absorbency, if the paper is too shiny, the paint will not adhere as well. If the paper is too thin, it will bend or become wavy from the wet paint. We've collected some of the paper blocks suitable for lino printing here, to get you started easily.
