Flood is a term used in printing to describe the amount of ink coverage on a substrate. The term can be used to describe the amount of ink coverage on a single color print or on a multi-color print. The amount of ink coverage is typically measured in percentages and is determined by the printing process and the type of ink being used.
In general, the term flood is used to describe an ink coverage of more than 80%. An ink coverage of less than 80% is considered a spot color. A spot color is an area of color that is printed using one color of ink. The term flood is also used to describe an ink coverage of more than 100%. An ink coverage of more than 100% is considered a flood color. A flood color is an area of color that is printed using more than one color of ink.
The term flood is also used to describe the act of printing an image or design onto a substrate using a printing press. The term can also be used to describe the act of printing an image or design onto a substrate using an inkjet printer.
In printing, a flood is a large uniform area of ink covering the entire printing surface. It is often used as the first step in a multi-color printing process, to establish a base color on which subsequent colors will be printed.
A flood can also be used to test the registration of a print job, or to ensure that the printing surface is evenly coated with ink.
Flood is an important factor to consider when printing covers. If the cover is not properly secured, it can cause the ink to run or smudge, which can ruin the print job. By ensuring that the cover is properly secured, you can avoid these issues and produce a high-quality print job.
