Paper in printing and printing is probably the most important thing next to paints. Without it, printing would not be possible. Paper as a material has been known since 105, n. E., That is for a very long time. However, it was not until the twentieth century that more and more types of paper for various applications were invented.
And now we have paper chalked, white, slippery, coated with plastics, etc. All this to achieve different results of advertising and journalistic printing. The end result of the printed item depends on the choice of paper, its durability and durability.
Why do we need standards?
Standards in every industry and business are important. Imagine that we buy a monitor and its input does not match our video card, even though it has the same type. That's why certain standards apply.
In polygraphy and graphics, such standards also exist - appropriate definitions of CMYK colors - key for the appropriate color reproduction. Specified in advance formats for printing leaflets and business cards, so that they are comfortable and as uniform as possible. Without standards, even leaflets could be completely unreadable and even repulsive.
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.
