Changing print needs
Printing is needed, no one has doubts about it, but are they just as necessary as 20 years ago? This is a debatable issue, but certainly the market needs and consumer demand have changed a bit.
The production of marketing materials increased significantly - leaflets, banners, promotional leaflets, and advertisements - and decreased the production of books and magazines, mainly due to the popularization of the Internet. Will we wait for the times when printers, DTP operators and printing house owners will have to look for a new job?
Specifics of color prints
The specificity of color printouts lies in the fact that they must be made using the highest quality inks and toners. Otherwise, they will not make a good impression on customers coming to the photocopier and they will just quickly fade. Meanwhile, the use of colored inks often saves important tables or the most important statements appearing in books. Therefore, all people who make color prints want to use multi-colored inks that perfectly reproduce the color of the document to be printed. This is of course very important, but it is equally important to reach for suitable printer paper before making color prints.
Offset printing - types and types
Offset printing is the most popular type of printing in today's printing industry. It is true that it has many varieties and uses different techniques and materials (paint, paper). The main division is cold printing, where the paint is fixed by soaking into paper. While the 'hot' offset where the printed paper web passes through the drying tunnel.
The classic offset (water) is associated with the use of water rollers and hydrophilic and hydrophobic surfaces, however, this method is already abandoned due to the difficulty in obtaining a good balance of water and oil paint.
The successor of this method is anhydrous offset printing where silicone molds are used instead of water.
