Work & Tumble


The term work and tumble refers to a printing technique where a sheet is printed on one side, then rotated 180 degrees around a horizontal axis (from top to bottom) and printed again on the other side.

It's an efficient method that allows for two-sided printing while ensuring the same edge of the paper is always leading into the press.

This technique is particularly beneficial when printing symmetrical pieces like Business Cards or Flyers, as it maintains alignment and reduces waste.
