What are perforation lines?

Perforation comes from the Latin word “foramen” and means hole or opening. It describes the piercing of objects in a regular alignment. For print products it refers to the perforation of paper or cardboard packaging so it is easy to tear off a piece of paper or a section of a page.

Perforations are most commonly used so that contact details or other important information can be removed from the actual print product and kept for future reference.
