This character is a combination of 片 a radical here meaning “thin piece of wood,” and 反 oppose. Here 反 is a phonetic element expressing “cut thinly,” giving us “thin wooden board.” Over time this character has come to specifically express an ”engraved plate” used in printing, as well as “printing/print” by extension.
