To print the image in the exact same position on each sheet of paper Register
The operation of an offset press in controlling the paper after the image is printed Delivery
Suction created through the sucker tube(s) by a vacuum pump intake Vacuum
A flat surface on which the sheet of paper is positioned between the feeder and cylinder systems Register Board
A chemical mixture applied to the nonimage areas of an offset plate to repel ink Fountain Solution
Dries ink quickly by using extreme heat Infrared Drying System
The process of printing from a flat surface with the image and nonimage areas separated by ink/water chemistry Offset Printing
A substance applied to the image areas of an offset plate for transfer to the blanket and then to the paper Ink
