The Printing Process

3 Dec

Our discussion about printing was very beneficial, without it I probably wouldn’t have learned about printing until encountering a situation in the professional realm.

I never realized how complicated the printing process is. Huge machines churn out sheet after sheet then printed with ink. The ink is checked approximately every 50 sheets for consistency. I was also surprised at the amount of paper options and how much the look of the ink can change when printed on different types of paper.

Having a little background knowledge about how complex and expensive the printing process is will be a great benefit in the future. I will be a little more informed of the time and budgeting that is necessary for an organization to have something printed.
