What is the difference between sheet and page in the graphic industry?
Many times these terms are confused and used as synonyms, but the truth is that they are totally different, especially if we focus on the graphic industry.
The thin sheet of paper we use as a printing substrate is called a sheet, and each side of the sheet is called a page. In other words, each sheet contains two pages. Therefore, a form can never have odd pages.
Knowing the difference in these terms is essential when it comes to quoting a job, and then producing it. They are very relevant data for the purchase of inputs, production times, among others.
