Work & TurnWork & Turn is a term used to describe the sheetfed litho practice of printing on both sides of a substrate. Typically, the first printing pass prints one side of the substrate. A second printing press pass follows as the job is turned and fed through the press again. The second pass can commence after the first pass inks are set and/or dry enough avoiding offsetting.

UV or hybrid(UV) inks are immediately cured (dry) enough to turned and second pass printed without drying time delays. Conventional sheetfed offset (litho) inks and overprint varnishes are based on resin systems and oils that set and dry by time dependent absorption and oxidation. Spray powders are used to dust these conventional litho inks and varnishes to prevent offsetting to the adjacent sheet back, when sheets are stacked in a pile at the end of a press.
