Makeready refers to the preparatory tasks performed before a print run begins.

It includes activities such as setting up the press, adjusting the plates, aligning the paper, and checking the ink distribution.

The aim is to ensure everything is set correctly for the actual printing process, with the initial sheets often being discarded until consistent, acceptable prints are produced.

Makeready plays a vital role in print quality control and efficient resource use.
