The definitive source for industry terms
When a term has more than one meaning, all explanations are displayed.
Trapping   Overlapping colors which butt together. When in perfect registration you will not see white around the edge of the two joining colors. More trapping is necessary when printing a newspaper, as opposed to printing a quality full color brochure.  
Trapping   The process of printing wet ink over printed ink which may be wet or dry.
