The printing term “Back to Back” indicates that the paper is printing on both sides, the front and back. This term is interchangeable with “double-sided” printing and can also be written in shorthand for CMYK printing that has all 4 color inks on both sides as 4/4.

Additionally, a document that has full color on one side and a single color on the other side can be written as 4/1.
