Loose page from a book.
Also: photocopy of article that appears in print.
Term originated when actual publications were torn apart to send pages and articles to authors or as marketing before modern copy machines made this not necessary.
Traditionally, tear sheets are printed pages that were set up "waste" of first rate book printing. Availability was generally limited to waste that was good enough to use in marketing. Tear sheets are actual book pages, and are a great way to allow book buyers to "get a taste" of your work. With digital printing, and the elimination of traditional "make ready" waste, digital tear sheets are generally purpose printed.
Digital is a greener alternative to high quality published books, as the industry waste standard is 10%. Traditional tear sheets may be available with offset books, free of charge. Digitally, choose your pages and quantities - they will all be first rate printed pages. One and two sided sheets are available. Use a one sided sheet as paper to send promotional letters on - turn a tear sheet into a sales sheet.
Customers printing 100 books+
