Lithographic printing

Conventional printing based on greasy inks and metal plates, as opposed to digital printing. Of the estimated 45 trillion pages printed around the world in 2005, 91 per cent were printed lithographically – although that proportion may well have dropped since.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup.
