Gravure is a high quality printing process capable of producing printed images which have a continuous tone effect similar to a photograph. The gravure process utilizes a metal printing cylinder onto which the image is etched. The gravure cylinder can be created with analog or digital plating processes.

Gravure is used for many packaging applications, magazines, and pressure sensitive labels. Gravure is the preferred method of producing magazines and catalogs that have large circulations. The National Geographic Magazine is an example of a publication that utilizes rotogravure
