Lithography

Product Range for Lithography
The technique of lithographic printing was developed in the time between 1796 and 1799 by Aloys Senefelder (1771 – 1834).

The result of Senefelder’s research comprised formidable possibilities for both the artistic and economical world of the 19th century.

Allowing for multiple prints from one stone template, the best material for lithography is Plattenkalk limestone from the Bavarian Altmühltal, as it can absorb both lipophilic and hydrophilic liquids.

With the help of lithography, all kinds of playing cards, letter heads, caricatures and advertisements were printed.

In music printing, it superseded the usual method of etching.

Today, lithography is applied exclusively as an artistic device and for inventive business cards, letter heads and so forth.
