a paper defect, where the paper is not opaque enough

a defect in printing, where the printed text on the back of a page can be seen through the page from the other side ▶ compare strike-through

COMMENT: When the printing on one side of the paper can be seen from the other side, this is due either to show-through or to strike-through. Show-through is caused by inadequate opacity of the paper, while strike-through results from the vehicle (the liquid component) of an oil-based ink penetrating right through the sheet.
