Glossary of Printing Terms:

  1. Computer-To-Plate (CTPe) – Imaging a plate directly from the computer instead of having to use a film negative to expose the image on the plate.

  2. Computer-To-Press (CTPs) – A printing system that sends the image directly from the digital files to the image carrier on a direct imaging press without the use of removable plates.

  3. Computer-To-Print (CTPt) – This is a plateless printing process. The computer sends a digital file to a digital printer and the image is printed directly on the paper. Some of the types of processes that use this plateless technology are electrophotography, ink jet, ion or electron deposition, magnetography, thermal transfer, and thermal dye sublimation.
