Substrate

The medium that is being printed on. This can be paper, plastic, metal, wood, or virtually any other hard (and usually flat) surface. It's a generic term, used mainly because many printing processes, including inkjet and screen, can print on many different types of medium. In the signage world, the term "medium" is used more often than "substrate," but the meaning is the same. See Media.
