    Quads are part of the spacing material for letterpress printing. The base size is the Em quad—spacing material in a quadratic shape with sides as long as the type size. Spacing material with the half width of an Em quad is called an En quad. Also in common use are larger quads like the 2-em quad and the 3-em quad.
