Picking of paper is defined as the damage of the paper surface during the printing operation

At the time the printing form is lifted off the paper, the ink is exerting a certain force on the paper. This force increases with an increase in the viscosity and tack of the ink and the printing speed. When this force exceeds a certain value, the surface of the paper will be damaged.
