Water and waterless - offset printing
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.
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?
Attractive printer prices for toners
The cheapest toners for printers can be found in computer and internet stores as well as in large shopping centers. It should be emphasized that reaching for the cheapest printer toners does not necessarily mean that they will not have good quality. This is because even replacements are produced according to generally accepted standards. In contrast, cheap printer toners can be released for sale by companies that can reduce the cost of their production or be covered by some kind of promotions or rebates. Thanks to that, their buying does not strain the home or company budget and allows for even bigger savings. On the other hand, it can be said that it allows the sellers themselves to acquire new customers.
