overlay

« Back to Glossary Index

In artwork, a transparent covering over the copy where color break, instructions or corrections are marked. Also, instead of dots coexisting on the same sheet of acetate, each color — magenta (red), cyan (blue), yellow and black — is represented on a different acetate overlay. Since this acetate is virtually transparent, the combination of four overlays will make a full-color image.
