probably etching, paper

The first list of symbols of techniques used in creating and printing ex-libris was adopted in 1958 at the Barcelona Congress of FISAE. However, a major revision was needed.
A revised list, given below, was adopted at the XXIX Congress, Frederikshavn DK, in August 2002.

A basic subdivision enables even relatively uninformed collectors to observe an ex-libris and determine in which of the three categories it belongs:
Intaglio - The ink is deposited from the grooves of the plate
Relief - The ink is deposited from the reliefs of the plate
Flatbed/stencil/electronic - The ink is deposited from the flat surface of the plate, through a stencil or screen, or electronically

Intaglio techniques (original)
C Intaglio printing (blank); embossing (Chalcographia)
C1 Steel engraving
C2 Burin (graven or gouge) engraving, notably on copper
C3 Echting
C4 Drypoint
C5 Aquatint
C6 Soft-ground or other ground-based echting
C7 Mezzotint
C8 Intaglio engraving on linoleum, plastic & other materilas

Intaglio techniques (reproductive)
P3 Heliogravure (manual line and tone photogravure), Photogalvanography
P4 Commercial photogravure, rotogravure
P10 Echted steel printing (die-printing)

Relief techniques (original)
X Relief printing (blank)
