In graphic design and printing, FPO (pronunciation: each letter is pronounced separately: /eff-pee-oh/) stands for for position only or for placement only. Blank placeholders or temporary low-resolution illustrations are watermarked or stamped with the acronym FPO to indicate where the final version of an image is to be placed in the final file, film, or plate. FPO images are commonly used while the layout of a print project is being determined, and/or when desired images are still to be scanned or photographed. They preserve the pagination that will be needed once the final images are added. In web design, FPO placeholder images provide a means for coders to finish building a website without waiting for final photographic assets.

Rarely, an FPO image makes it into print through an error by the production staff.
