Acid-Free
Acid-free papers are manufactured in an alka-line environment, which prevents the internal chemical deterioration of the paper over time. The addition of calcium carbonate as a buffer also makes the paper resistant to the effects of an external acidic environment.
 
Aqueous Coating
Similar to varnish, an aqueous coating provides protection, sits on the sheet, dries quickly and hard.
 
Bristol
Solid or laminated heavy-weight printing paper made to a thickness of .006" or higher. It is often used for business cards, social announcements, posters and folders.
 
Color Substitution
A way to alter the look of an image, one ink is substituted for another, often in four-color process printing. Keep in mind that color is substituted on the entire separation affecting every place it appears within the image.
