What is Gravure?

Gravure is a printing process that uses intaglio or engraved metal plates or cylinders. The three main gravure segments are:

  • Publishing (e.g., magazines)
  • Packaging (e.g., folding cartons such as soda cases)
  • Products (e.g., shower curtains and vinyl flooring).

The DfE Gravure Printing Partnership was formed to:



  • Identify common environmental issues for small- and medium-size printers in the packaging and product sectors.

  • Encourage printers and product sectors to address these issues by reducing risk and preventing pollution.
