Glossary of Printing Terms:
Tonal Value Increase


The percent increase in the apparent darkness of an image in the mid-tone range during the production run.

Example: with 15 percent dot gain, a 55 percent halftone will increase to 70 percent.

This increase is compensated for in reproduction by making the image lighter in the color separations. See also dot gain
