What is Ganging in the Print World?

In the print world when you print more than one, for instance a post card, on one sheet that is called ganging. It saves money and the post cards can be different. On our digital press we can gang four 5.5×8.5 post cards, that are the same, and print variable data such as the address and a personalized message..all on one pass of the press. This is for runs of 5000 or below. At our shop, larger quantities can be ganged but the variable data has to be added after they are printed.
