The printing itself is a department wide as the sea and various fishes in this sea are swimming. From simple leaflets to large banners or window stickers. With such a broad concept, it is sometimes difficult to say what the printing company specializes in.
Some factories are choosing low-volume small-format prints, others for stickers, and others only for large-format printing. What sometimes makes it difficult to choose one plant for our orders, but what the market is like, and the price of services and their quality are also important.
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?
DTP work programs
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.
