Default Stupid Glossary ?

Oh great geeks that like to squish wax between rods...

Define "Up" and "On" for me. I have my thoughts but would like to here yours.

Thanks,
JR

Up -- not down

On -- not off (also occasionally upon, which is different from up and on)

> Up -- not down<snip/>

As in top of (press) sheet, first pass (and therefore implying a portion of two sided work)? ...and how then, would athrid term, "out" fit the equation?

Feeling rather sheepishfor even having to ask,

You can actually edit your posts, you know! (I do that a lot since I'm a terrible yptist.)

I didn't realize we were talking printing terms here when you said glossary. (I should have realized, based on the forum room we are in.)

Up - Means the number of items per page. If you print business cards, the stock is too small to print them singly. You print 3 up or 4 up, which means 3 or 4 on the sheet. 5.5 x 8.5 flyers (NA sizes, I know) are usually printed 2 up or 4 up.

Out - means up.

On - I have never head this as a term, other than the one I first came up with, that is when the press is not off, it is on.

Curveto - is he one of us or one of "them" _ I think he is one of them

"on" means "run on" when we quote - we quote say the initial quantity and then a 1000 run on

Never heard of that use here for on. Quotes here are for a quantity and for additional thousands (occasionally hundreds).

Don:

You probably have, unless you are particulatly fussy in Ontario: from '1000 onward' (or from 1000 on) is normal English, not a term used only by printers.
