Plus Icon What do the common print terms mean?

Artwork is a term used to describe the image sent to a printer for printing purposes. It can be illustrations, text matter, photographs or any combination of these. 

Process of fastening papers together.

In printing terms bleed is where the printing image runs off the edge of the paper.
'Bleed' is an essential part of creating artwork for print. Professional designers will always extend (or 'bleed') background elements and images beyond the edges of the document by an additional 3mm. This prevents unwanted white borders around the edges of a printed document.
Commercial printing presses are no different to your desktop inkjet or laser printer - they cannot print to the very edge of a sheet of paper. To get around the problem, we print your design onto a larger sheet of paper and then cut it down to size. 

Carbonless Paper (NCR)
Paper coated with chemicals that enable the transfer of images from one sheet to another with pressure from writing or typing.

The initial letters often used to describe the four colour printing process. The colours being Cyan (blue), Magenta (red), Yellow and Black. For best results artwork should be set up in CMYK colour mode when printing.  

Comb Bind

Means `dots per square inch`. A measure of the quality from a scanner or output resolution of a printer. The more dots per inch the better the quality. 300dpi is the standard for printed images.
