Glossary of Printing Terms:
Sizing

The process by which certain materials such as glue, rosin or starch are added to the furnish or pulp mass of a paper before processing.

Sizing increases the ink receptivity of a paper and gives it other special characteristics.

Special grades may be subsequently surfaced-sized on the dry end of the paper machine.
