Programs used in the print shop and not only
A3 mono laser printer UKThere 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.

You can also include word processors, programs provided by print equipment manufacturers, to the pool of programs needed for such work.
Changing print needsPrinting 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?
Printing at printing plants and printing plantsPaints, 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.
