Engraving on Tetra Pak® has the same requirements as traditional drypoint engraving, except that the material engraved on is recycled, accessible to everyone and practically ready for use, unlike copper or zinc
plates, which require a relatively long preparation phase. This gain in time and money will allow you to work freely and spontaneously, without worrying about “ruining a plate”, and Tetra Pak® is perfectly suitable for making limited series of prints.
