This Indian Standard (Part 3) (First Revision) which is identical with ISO 12637 - 3 : 2009 ‘Graphic technology - Vocabulary - Part 3: Printing terms’ issued by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) was adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards on the recommendation of the Publication and Graphic Technology Sectional Committee and approval of the Management and Systems Division Council.

This standard (Part 3) is a part of IS 15306/ISO 12637 under the general title “Graphic technology - Vocabulary”. Other parts in this series are:

Part 1 Fundamental terms

Part 2 Prepress terms

Part 4 Post press terms

This standard was first published as IS 15306 : 2003 ‘Printing and publishing - Glossary of terms’. It has been decided to adopt the corresponding International Standard in order to harmonize it with the latest developments that have taken place at international level.

The text of ISO Standard has been approved as suitable for publication as an Indian Standard without deviations. Certain conventions and terminologies are, however, not identical to those used in Indian Standards. Attention is particularly drawn to the following:

a) Wherever the words ‘International Standard’ appear referring to this standard, they should be read as ‘Indian Standard’.

b) Comma (,) has been used as a decimal marker while in Indian Standards, the current practice is to use a point (.) as the decimal marker.
