the publisher\'s or printer\'s name which appears on the title page of a book or document or in the bibliographical details

a brand name under which a book is published within a larger publishing company, which usually represents a specialised subject area

a mark made by firmly pressing something onto a surface

COMMENT: Catalogues, advertisements and fliers do not need to have an imprint, but almost all other printed matter (books, newspapers, and even political leaflets) must carry two imprints: that of the publisher and of the printer. In a book, the imprints will normally appear on the reverse of the title page as part of the bibliographic information; in some countries it is usual to have the printer\'s imprint at the end of the book. In a magazine, imprints may be listed along with other details of the editors and other staff members.
