    Layout in which both sides of a sheet can be printed using a single plate.

    The paper is turned over after the first side is printed, using the same edge of the first printing as the gripper edge for the second printing ("backing up the job"). Different side guides are used for each pass.

    Work-and-turn and work-and-tumble jobs can save time and money by not requiring a plate change before printing the second side of the sheet.
