The paper or other material inserted between printed sheets in order to avoid offsetting an image on one sheet onto the back of the next sheet. In terms of the preparation of copy, "slipsheet" means to insert pages into proper sequence to indicate the placement of illustrations that have not yet been prepared. Each page. or slipsheet, identifies its particular illustration, along with information as to whether the illustration is line or halftone, foldout or horizontal, as well as the size, the negative or art file number, the figure number and titles, and any other information that might serve to key illustration to its proper page for printing or collating.
