Term of the Week: Opaque

The Term of the Week is a weekly feature where A&E turns to industry experts to define common tools, processes, language, etc. used in the awards, engraving, and personalization industry, including terminology within the business realm. Contact Printwear's digital content editor, Marley Jeranko, if you're interested in contributing and for an opportunity to be featured in our daily eNewsletter. 

An object or substance that is opaque is not clear or translucent; it blocks the passage of radiant energy, especially light.
