English term or phrase: keyline (and other printing terms)
I don't know what keyline is the following context. A printing firm says to its customers:

"Although we can work from original hard copy or **keyline**, most businesses rely on computers"

Also how do you render in Polish the following words in the printing context:
* solid (a large area covered entirely with one color)
* output (like digital color output)
* piece (what they print for one customer)
* pre-press (they say that color printing on digital pre-press equipment is faster and cheaper)

I will indeed appreciate your help.

Regards,

Piotr

Explanation:
Keyline: A black lined area on a layout or art board indicating a precise area for the placement of a color or black and white reproduction. It is generally noted specifically to use the black line to "trap" the photo to the background or to drop the black line and simply use the keyline to create the window for a halftone placement. http://www.uniprint.com/terms/k.htm

KEYLINE

Dibuja la simbología de líneas. El detalle de la simbología debe estar previamente escrito en un archivo creado con un editor común. El nombre de este archivo se usa como parámetro del comando. Utilizando NOBOX como segundo parámetro, no se dibujará la cajita en torno al símbolo.
