the practice of inserting unprinted sheets of paper between printed sheets as they come off the press, to prevent the unwanted transfer of ink from printed sheet to printed sheet
(1) In printing - the placing of sheets of paper between printed sheets as they come from the machine to prevent set-off; also known as 'slip-sheeting'. (2) In book binding â€“ insetting into and folding around the sections of a book paper different from that used in the general body of the book. Also the alternating of processed and plain sheets, for example, in a duplicate book.
Printed pages loosely inserted in a publication/between sheets.
An acid-free sheet that is placed between pages in a scrapbook when no sheet protector is used. The sheet prevents photos from touching another one, which could result in scratching and damage to the emulsion. Close Window
The placement of absorbent material between leaves to hasten drying. Interleaving sheets should be clean and dry, unprinted, and, ideally, acid-free. In books the total number of interleaving sheets should constitute no more than one-third the thickness of the volume in order to limit physical distortion. When air drying is the only option, despite the risk of severe distortion, coated (glossy) papers should be interleaved between each sheet to prevent blocking (sticking).
A process of using sheets of paper or other material to separate items. Buffering paper is often recommended to be put between acid materials to prevent acid migration
The placing of a sheet of paper between two adjacent layers of metal to facilitate handling and shearing of rectangular sheets, or to prevent sticking or scratching.
