The finer the "Screen" used to create the printing film and plates, the more detail can be portrayed in the final printed piece. Most color printing is performed between 133 to 175 lines per inch.
Line screen measures the number of dot lines per inch, which provides an indication of image sharpness. The finer the "screen" used to create printing plates, the more detail can be portrayed in the final printed piece. GTI smART Print printing presses are run at line screens up to 175 lines per inch.
Used to define the density of a screened or halftone image. That is, a 133-line screen contains a pattern with 133 halftone dots per linear inch. The higher the number, the higher the resolution, and in turn the higher quality of detail in reproduction of original artwork.
A measure of the distance between the rows of dots in a printed HALFTONE, usually expressed in lines per inch or lines per centimeter. Also, "line screen frequency." The higher the line screen, the better-quality the reproduction.
The number of lines or spots per inch on a halftone screen. (See the resolution section in the Building Electronic File Module.)
The number of rows or lines of dots in a halftone image within a given distance, normally stated in lines per inch (lpi). A frequencey of 200 lpi would only be used in high-quality printing.
This defines the dots per inch in a screen, commonly used line screens come in 88, 133, 150 and 200. The 88 line screen is used in newsprint production, 133 is used for uncoated stocks and 150 and 200 are used for coated stocks.
The number of horizontal lines of ink in a square inch.
Also referred to as the line screen frequency, this refers to the measure of distance between the rows of dots that make up a halftone screen. Lower line screens are used on rougher, low quality printing substrates (such as newsprint), whilst higher line screens are used for high quality print jobs on smooth art papers.
Defines the lines-per-inch (lpi) which determine the maximum number of gradations used to reproduce continuous-tone images using individual dots of printing ink or toner on paper. (Most modern laser printers are optimized to produce a line screen of 85 lpi.)
Alternate term for Screen Ruling.
The number of dot lines created per inch, or lines per inch (LPI).
The frequency, or fineness of a halftone or screen, expressed in lines per inch (lpi). Coarse screens are used where dot gain is high, fine screens where highest quality is required. This is usually a function of the type of printing press and the paper specification. Common values are 85, 100, 120, 133 and 150 lpi.
Term referring to the organization of elements of a printing screen, used to define the density of the screen, i.e., a 133-line screen refers to a pattern with halftone dots per inch. The higher the number, the higher the quality of detail reproduction.
The number of lines or dots per inch on a halftone screen. Also called screen frequency.
The frequency of dots in halftone screen, used to define the density of the screen. A 133-line screen has 133 halftone dots per linear inch. The higher the number, the higher-quality of detail reproduction.
The resolution of a halftone, expressed in lines per inch.
The number of half-tone dots that can be printed per inch. As a general rule, newspapers print at 65 to 85 lpi, large city newspapers at 100 or 120 lpi; magazines at 133 or 150 lpi; and, glossy, "coffee table" books at 175 to 200.
The number of halftone dots per inch in a printed image. Often 150 lpi, although this varies depending on the printing method.
