Glossary of Printing Terms:
Screen

In image reproduction terminology, an area made up of small geometric forms of either regular or random arrangement, for example round, square or other shaped dots and lines.

The screen is used to convert contone images into a black/white or full-color representation suitable for printing.

This is done by varying either the size or the frequency of the elements to reflect the brightness of the image.
