About

Lithographic printing was invented in the late 18th century, and by the mid-19th century, it had become a popular method of printing for advertising.

Lithography is a printing process in which an image is drawn onto a flat stone or metal plate with a greasy substance such as a lithographic crayon or ink. The plate is then chemically treated to create areas that attract ink and areas that repel ink. When the plate is printed onto paper, the ink adheres only to the areas that attract it, creating a high-quality image.

The advantages of lithography for advertising were many. It allowed for the production of high-quality, full-color images that could be reproduced quickly and cheaply. This made it possible for advertisers to produce large quantities of printed materials such as posters, handbills, and trade cards, which could be distributed widely to promote their products.

In the 1800s, lithographic printing played an important role in the growth of American consumer culture. Advertisements for everything from patent medicines to clothing to household goods were printed using lithography, and the colorful and eye-catching images helped to make products more appealing to consumers.
