Glue Bat printing and other cold processes

Some of the earliest printing on tiles in the 1750s was done using woodblocks. It is not known exactly how this was done, but it must have been a cold printing technique. 

Most overglaze printing was done using a glue bat. You can read descriptions of the process here, as well as accounts by James Poulton in 1799, and by Thomas Battam in 1851.

In the mid 19th century new techniques of block printing and lithographic printing were patented and introduced.
