A process for reprographic printing on plain paper in whid-r a thin layer of photopolymerizable liquid is coated onto the paper surface and then exposed to a visible light image so that exposed portions of the layer are hardened by polymerization and unexposed (image) portions are not. The image is then developed by brushing with toner particles which adhere to the unpolymerized areas. Subsequent polymerization; e.g., in daylight, slowly fixes the image.
