After the print run has been completed, the sheets are often processed further. First of all, it can be assumed that the sorting, collecting and folding of the printed sheets does not differ greatly from the finishing tasks practiced after other printing processes. Nevertheless, there are some tips for carefully handling the freshly printed sheets.
After the sheets are printed and have properly dried, multi-layer printed products need to be processed further to shape the sheets as desired. The sheets should keep their bleed margin for now and the final trimming of the body of the book should be left as the final step.
When further processing risographically printed sheets, the sheets should be treated carefully because the aforementioned lack of fixation of the ink means that the sheets are much more likely to stain than screen- or offset-printed sheets.
