Glossary of Printing Terms:
Tonal Jump

The sudden increase in dot gain that results from color bridges that form between dots.

In a tonal gradation from white to black, there is always a specific gray value at which two adjacent dots come into slight contact and join, a phenomenon called touching.

The result is that a smooth tonal gradation is destroyed by a visible, harsh transition or jump.
