Printing industry professionals use an up to measure how many impressions can be produced from one printing plate in a press run as an indicator of cost per thousand (CPM) for advertising or mailing piece costs; larger up values correspond with lower CPM rates.

Calculating up is straightforward; divide the total impressions in your press run by the number of printing plates used (for instance, if 10,000 impressions and four printing plates were utilized, your up would equal 2,500).

The up is essential because it determines how many impressions can be printed from one printing plate. A larger up increases efficiency and leads to a lower advertisement or mailing piece CPM.

Calculating CPM requires dividing the total cost of the printing job by its upcharge; for instance, if this project costs $1,000 with an upcharge of 2,500, then CPM would equal $0.40.

Up is used to refer to the size of a printing job. For instance, a print shop might charge $500 for an Order of 50. This would require 50 printing plates, each printing one copy of your document; printing companies usually charge $10 per thousand copies so this job would cost $5,500.

Up is a groundbreaking film that has had an outsized effect on the printing industry. With its unique color and design, Up has inspired a new generation of printers who have helped redefine the standards by which prints are evaluated. Furthermore, its digital printing technology revolutionized the printing process, making it more accessible.
