Glossary of Printing Terms:
Grain Direction

As the paper web is carried forward on the machine, the majority of fibers orient themselves in the machine direction.

When the web of paper is sheeted, the sheets will be grain long (fibers that follow the long side of the sheet) or grain short (they follow he short side).

Grain direction should be considered during the design process for best results during printing, folding, and converting.
