Japanese Vinyl is a two sided synthetic rubber plate that is often used in Japan for relief printing due to its easy to carve, smooth surface. However, it is just as successful as an Intaglio printing block since it is dense enough to hold itself under pressure. It takes pencil marks and permanent markers well, and you can also transfer your images onto the vinyl with carbon paper.
When shopping for a great carving surface relief printers have to consider a number of things including the flexibility of the material. Lino tends to be sensitive to cold and may crack if not handled with care. We can recommend this vinyl for anyone who is looking for a bendy, easy-to-cut and no-fuss surface; it takes scissors and knives very smoothly and this makes it ideal for those who prefer to size their blocks on the go.
