Printing? multiple reflection of an image from a printing form onto a printing substrate (e.g., on paper). Every copy, that is a print, is commonly called a print.
The printing also means various techniques for copying text and graphics using traditional methods, using printing machines, as well as modern computer methods with the use of computer peripherals, such as printers, plotters, etc. - although such prints should be called printouts.
The introduction of computer techniques and digital printing to printers has meant that printing is also often understood as printing done on an industrial scale by means of adapted printing machines.
Various types of printer inks are available for sale. They are mainly divided into black and color inks having different capacities. Standard sizes of printer inks are purchased by people with the highest quality printers who do not want to make too many prints or prefer to buy accessories that have generally accepted sizes. In contrast, large printer inks can be bought by people who want to make a large number of prints or make some savings. This is because large-size printer inks are usually slightly cheaper or covered by special promotions that make them really attractive.
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.
