Wood Block Printing – Practice Transfers

I have been experimenting with the transferal of ink from a standard photocopy or laser jet print, using a solvent and printing press. Currently working on a furniture commission, of which I hope to use this process to apply images, creates interest within its internal compartments. In addition to these creative / conceptual applications, I will be trialing this method as means to mark my finished pieces with my brand and the date of completion. It is hoped that it will become a part of my regular practice; to ensure there is a link from me the maker and the objects I create, via a ‘maker mark’.

    Great website and insight into these branding techniques.
    When using the wood block printing would you have to print a mirrored image, face it down and apply oil? Or normal print?
