Computer printer in Wikipedia page
In computing, a printer is a peripheral device which makes a persistent human-readable representation of graphics or text on paper. The first computer printer designed was a mechanically driven apparatus by Charles Babbage for his difference engine in the 19th century; however, his mechanical printer design was not built until 2000.
The first electronic printer was the EP-101, invented by Japanese company Epson and released in 1968.
The first commercial printers generally used mechanisms from electric typewriters and Teletype machines.
The demand for higher speed led to the development of new systems specifically for computer use.
In the 1980s were daisy wheel systems similar to typewriters, line printers that produced similar output but at much higher speed, and dot matrix systems that could mix text and graphics but produced relatively low-quality output.
The plotter was used for those requiring high quality line art like blueprints.Źródło: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Printer_(computing)
Printing once and today 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?
Good printing and design
Everyone likes when the leaflet is colorful, aesthetic and legible. However, a lot depends on the project itself, in other words, graphics preparing the files for printing.
He must be aware of the basic matters regarding composition and layout.
A well-made leaflet will certainly have a better effect than a short, ugly one.
A lot also depends on the printing house and the selection of paper and the type of printing.
A leaflet looks better on shiny and smooth paper than on a torn parchment.
The type of paint and the method of printing is also not insignificant, and its selection is best entrusted to a specialist in this topic or to pass on a printing company that has extensive experience with each type of orders.
