Publishing Word of the Day: Opacity

6 Dec

Opacity

A measure of how opaque a sheet of paper is. Low opacity allows printing on the the back side to show through. Opacity may be achieved through increasing sheet thickness or by adding chemical opacifiers.

(From The Elements of Graphic Design by Alexander White. NY: Allworth Press, 2002. p. 138.)

I’ve also added another link to the links menu on the right side of the this page. It leads to “Current Topics with Mike,” the blog of Mike Reeser, President of Texas State Technical College West Texas. Although blogs are all the rage these days as an example of New Media marketing, it was only after coming across his blog earlier this year that we decided to start the TSTC Publishing blog.
