Definitions for "Picking"
Keywords:  tack, tacky, unprinted, specks, lift
A problem generally resulting from using an ink that's too tacky for the paper it's printed on. The ink actually pulls tiny pieces of the paper off the surface of the sheet. Two types of picking are fiber bundles and coating picking. Fiber bundles are caused by weak fiber bond, and coating picking occurs when the adhesive properties of coating binder aren't strong enough to hold up the high tack of the offset printing process.
The lifting and separating of fibers from the paper's surface during printing. It occurs when the tack of the ink or blanket is greater than the surface strength of the paper.
Picking is the description of a rupture on the paper surface produced during the manufacturing or printing process.

1. The operation of passing the weft through the warp shed during weaving. 2. The rectification of the face and back of a carpet after manufacture including inserting missing tufts replacing faulty ones, and repairing broken yarns in the backing. Also known as 'mending'. 3. A process preferably carried out before the final stage of fabric finishing, which involves removing by hand any contamination (such as kemp, wrong fibre, coloured hair, etc.) which has not been removed by previous processing. This process is carried out particularly during the finishing of suitings, face-finished fabrics, and cream or off-white fabrics. 4. See scutching (cotton).
The final operation in the cotton system preparation line, in which the cotton flocks are opened mechanically, cleaned, and formed into a lap of specified mass per unit area, for feeding to a carding machine.
