Who today does not have a printer at home. Their prices are becoming more affordable and operating costs lower. Multifunction devices offer increasingly larger scanning resolutions, less margin, larger formats, etc.
But still, such home printers are far behind the professional equipment used in professional printers. Not to mention the much larger range of techniques used, which have nothing to do with those we know from home printers. Printed roll, solvent, water, anhydrous - long to exchange. The quality of such printouts is higher, which entails the obvious higher costs of printing itself.
Online printers are gaining more and more supporters, not surprisingly when more and more commerce is done online. This is a very convenient solution, because you can immediately overcome mistakes made by potential customers when placing an order.
Often, they send a bad file in the wrong format, with the web printing this error is still captured by the script itself accepting the order. Of course, such printers also have their drawbacks, ie the lack of the possibility of an individualized approach to the client and his needs, unless we get a really good printing house.
And you also print?
The printing era has been pretty good since Gutenberg. First, important things were printed like books. But these are REALLY important, not some literature for the mob. Well, because the mob was quite illiterate at the time. Then also such fiction was printed, meaning for the reading of the book. Well, since the last 50 years (even hundreds of them), it's all about printing - books, leaflets, business cards, even shirts, mugs, pens ... Well, really everything. Because you need to build brand awareness at the customer, i.e. printing and marketing is an inseparable couple. Because you can print everything on your T-shirt and have it originally. Well, who would prohibit the rich?
