1. Paper or board that is trimmed on at least two sides to ensure exactness of angle. For all high quality printing and folding jobs, and particularly in a work-and-tumble imposition, the paper must be squared before printing. In other impositions it is only necessary that the side guide edge and the gripper edge are at a right angle. 2. Another term for sectional and/or scale paper.
