Glossary of Printing Terms:
Pressure Sensitive

A property of substrates and paper stocks indicating that the material may be affected by impact, friction or weight.

An example would be pressure sensitive paper which has an adhesive layer, which adheres to a surface when weight or friction is applied.

Another example would be carbonless papers, which are sensitive to impact.

Impact to the carbonless paper causes the chemical coating to rupture and form an image.
