About printing companies
Paints, inks, paper, toners, foils and other consumables - these are things that can not be missing from printing plants. They are ordered wholesale and also consumed in bulk. For each order, the production costs are optimized, and the appropriate technique and type of printing is selected.
Graphic designers, DTP operators and printers deal with this. They are responsible for the quality of the printout and as soon as something is wrong they are the first to be targeted by the dissatisfied boss. Their work is quite hard and I have to admit that you have to really have a fuss to do it. Work after hours, maximum focus and responsibility - definitely not work for everyone.
What programs dominate in printers
There are more and more graphics processing programs, from the most popular Photoshop to less known and free ones like Inkscape. Professionals usually use one or two proven programs, which translates into their high productivity.
In the work of graphics or DTP operator you usually need a program for processing vector and raster graphics. You can also include word processors, programs provided by print equipment manufacturers, to the pool of programs needed for such work.
Various types of printers are available for sale. Currently, only printers without scanners and additional accessories are less and less sold. However, this kind of printing devices are most often bought by private individuals who want to print only basic documents, applications or home-made essays written in secondary schools. However, printers can also successfully perform much more complex functions and tasks. With a modern printing device, you can print entire books, color documents and specialized files that require an individual approach. It can be seen that it is worth having a small printer at home and using photocopying services.
