Stationary sales of printers
Printers are very often sold in a stationary way. Although the internet sale of various types of devices is even more popular among potential customers, there are also people who use computer stores when they want to buy a new or used printer. It must be admitted that buying printers in computer stores is by far the best way to acquire new printing devices, but they can also be found in large stores with a general range, which includes various types of accessories for printers and the printing devices themselves. Among these types of stores, you can distinguish popular hypermarkets.
Printing is not only printing leaflets, business cards or large banners - it also prints other, necessary materials such as: stickers, self-adhesive letters or labels. In principle, everything that comes out of the printing house can be included in the category of printing.
There are plants specializing in the production of only a specific group of printed materials: eg leaflets, or only large-format printing. However, this results from a simple thing: for every type of printing you need to have the right machine, and these take up space and cost a lot. That is why printing plants limit the amount of services provided.
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.
