Print Run: Defines the number of copies printed.  With our system, usually anything under 100 will be digitally “printed”, and anything 100 and over will generally be offset printed.

Terms marked with an asterisk (*) are not generally used in our office.

The feedback we are getting from Adobe Dream Weaver is wonderful, with a bit of a steep learning curve. There are many others as well.
