Copperplate is a rather old-fashioned term for prints made by engravings and etchings in printmaking, and still a correct term for the original metal plates used to print them. The sheets of copper, or other metals, are printed by intaglio printing. Many historic copperplates for old master prints survive, often reworked by later publishers, as most of Rembrandt's have been.
