This is some of my past writing I’ve done about the linocut process. Hopefully, these resources will be particularly helpful for students, beginners or those returning to the medium.

I’ve also reviewed some popular brands of block printing ink, carving tools and presses.

Recommended Supplies

These recommendations are based on my experience working in linocut printmaking. Some links will take you to Blick Art Materials and Amazon, where lino printing supplies are available. I participate in their affiliate programs so if you click on those links, I would get a small commission if you end up buying something on the sites, at no cost to you. This helps keep this enterprise going. But, please shop at your favorite store! You can find more details about this here.


I run a couple of online linoleum block printing courses that students can start anytime.
