A Deep Etch is where a line is etched into the metal plate very deep, far deeper than a normal etch. The challenge comes when the plate is inked. A very still ink is rubbed into the etched lines and then the surface of the plate wiped clean. The challenge is to not pull ink out of the etched lines when wipes the surface clean. When the ink finally dries, it is in relief as there is so much ink that was transferred to the paper.
