*Gang Shoot(ing): Several photographs to be included in the publication are placed together and halftoned at one time. While many printers do this by shooting any photo “as they come” within the manuscript – this does not turn out well many times for very light and very dark photos. This technique is often employed to reduce cost of photo. Our new electronic halftoning process eliminates this need.
Gloss(y) paper: Paper that has been coated on one or both sides during paper production. Some high gloss papers glare, making them difficult to read. Additionally, gloss paper is generally expensive and can not be offset printed.
