Variable Data Printing

Is a form of on-demand printing in which elements (such as text, graphics, photographs, etc) can be changed from one printed piece to the next, without stopping or slowing down the press, using information from a database. For example, a set of personalized letters, each with the same basic layout, can be printed with a different name and address on each letter.

Varnish

A clear coating added to printed material as a protective layer for improved scuff resistance and usually higher gloss.

Vellum

A finish of paper that is somewhat bulky and is slightly rough.

Vignette

A photo or illustration, in which the tones fade gradually away until they blend with the background they are printed on.
