Our FAQ's

We have included, within the subject areas at left, a number of topics to answer your questions ranging from how to obtain an ISBN number to finding a designer for your project. The Proofing Terminology, Binding Options, and Additional Terminology sections include a wide range of terms describing various aspects of the printing and book manufacturing trade. We have left out many of the more esoteric terms that no longer apply in today’s digital world. Some of the more interesting terms from years gone by include dingbat (term used for a character that is something other than type or punctuation), widow (a short line at the end of a paragraph at the top of a page, or a single word ending a paragraph on a line by itself), and goldenrod (material used to strip film negatives to position on an imposed flat).
