Printmaking has a long important history. It is in important because it is impossible to make the same image exactly the same. So in order to get the image closest to it's exact form you have to print it on to a surface and use that surface on other surfaces.

The invention stopped hard work and labor towards making the same design over again. It is almost impossible to draw the same design over and over again so that is why printmaking was so important. Printmaking was used in all cultures unlike something where it is a cultural thing. This is important and needed with in all cultures and worlds.
