Relief is a collective name for a group of processes in which the image is formed on the paper by inking an original image on the plate (or matrix) where the negative spaces in the image are carved into the matrix. In other words, the areas to show white on the printed paper are incised out of the plate. (A regular ink-stamp is an example.) This contrasts to the Intaglio process in which the ink image is printed from the incisions themselves.
