Both monoprints and monotypes involve the transfer of ink from a matrix. However, monotypes are printed from applying ink to a featureless plate (print matrix), which the artist manipulates to create one unique print, while monoprints are created by applying ink to a plate (print matrix) that already has marks that are permanent. Each print from a monoprint is essentially a variation on the theme as the plate can be inked differently prior to each print.  There can be infinite variations.
