What is Mistgraph printing?
Mistgraph printing is a technique for printing reproductions of original art prints and paintings that “isn’t a lithograph and isn’t silkscreen.” Rather, it is a combination of analog printing techniques and digital image processing where the ink is sprayed onto the paper like a mist - hence the name “Mistgraph.” Due to it providing color that doesn’t fade for close to 50 years, this technique is often used to replicate famous historical and cultural artworks, thus making it highly valued for its quality.
