K is Kiss Cut
Kiss Cut is a very light die-cutting impression that cuts through just one layer of a substrate or laminate - for example on a label or sticker. This allows the shape of the label to be cut but not the release backing sheet.

J is Jog
Paper joggers are used to help eliminate static in your documents and to align your pages for punching, binding, cutting, mailing or shipping. When you jog your paper project, you ensure that all of your pages are perfectly aligned before you finish or cut them.

I is International Standard (ISO 216)
While we have our own standard letter and envelope sizes in the United States, internationally, the ISO 216 is the International Standard. It is the metric format that has been adopted by all countries in the world, except the United States and Canada. Although Mexico and the Philippines have officially adopted the ISO 216 standard, our "letter" format is still common. ISO is the abbreviation for “International Organization for Standards". This organization develops and publishes standards for a variety of technical applications, including paper. You may need to know the international standards when you work on a print or design project that will mail or be utilized “across the pond”.  You can find a listing of common metric sizes for paper and envelopes here.
