Note that "trapping" has two meanings in the printing world.
One relates to the way the inks stick to what it's being printed
over :- ie. if one plate printed on paper achieves 100% trap (coverage),
then when it's printed on top of a previous plate it might
have 90% trap because it doesn't stick as well to ink as paper, etc.
The other relates to "choke and spread", used to create
plate alignment (registration) tolerance.
