Work & Turn


Work and turn is a cost-effective printing method used when printing on both sides of a sheet.

In this method, both sides of the sheet are designed and laid out on a single plate.

The sheet is then printed on one side, with multiple pages on the half sheet. The sheet is turned over from left to right and printed on the reverse side using the same plate.

This technique maximises the use of the paper and the press, speeding up production and saving costs.
