Seattle Offset Printing
Industry Terms and Lingo.

Ganging
When a printer runs a variety of different jobs together for more efficient production.

Gate fold
Finished sheet where both sides are folded, overlapping, towards the gutter.

Gripper margin
Unprinted space allowed for the printing press to grip the sheet. This should be a minimum of 3/8 inch.

Gutter
The inside margins or blank space between two facing pages of a magazine or book is called the gutter.
The gutter space is allowed due to the space lost during the binding process, especially during perfect binding. In saddled-stitched publications the gutter is adjusted o allow for a process called 'creep', in which the outer pages of a section appear to bunch up and the inner pages protrude more.
