Collection: Tetra Pak Intaglio Prints

Tetra Pak intaglio is an experimental version of the traditional drypoint etching or intaglio printmaking technique. In the traditional version, an etching needle is used to engrave an image into a metal plate, that will then be inked and used to print the design.

The Tetra Pak intaglio technique replaces the metal plate with a piece Tetra Pak™, such as those used for milk, juice or soup packaging. This material consists of several layers—the cardboard is coated with thin metal film and a layer of plastic—and the image is engraved onto the metal side of the plate.
