Before the advent of the printing press if something needed to be duplicated, a person known as a scribe had the job of hand making copies. This was not an efficient way to get this process done, but it was the only way, there was no such thing as a printing company.
Next came the printing press, this allowed for a single page to be duplicated, but in order for this to work a hard copy had to be carved into a plate. While this improved the ability to print multiple copies of a page, it was still a lengthy process, but the first printing company was created.
Looking for a solution to speed up the printing process, movable type was invented which revolutionised the printing process and the printing company. Movable type allowed for a much quicker set up to print a page, making it possible to print a document with a large amount of pages.
As time went on the printing process was refined and improved. The printing company continued to look for a better and faster way to print continued to improve printing. Finally the computer was created and after taking up most of a large room, the micro processor made computers much smaller and the digital age was born.
Now with the ability to hook into the internet, the printing company can easily be contacted and information for printing can be emailed back and forth. There is almost no need to leave the office to meet a company's printing needs.
A printing company can now efficiently print large or small batch print jobs, and almost any type of printing assignment can be completed quickly and easily. With all this ease of printing, the decision must be made, as to which printing company to select in order to ensure the quality of your printing.
This decision must be made based on what your printing needs are and price. If you only need a simple one page black and white page printed, almost any printing company can meet your needs. However if you need a multiple paged document in full color, then you need to make sure that the company selected can handle the project for the right price.
Do not hesitate to ask all the questions needed in order to understand what a printing company can offer your business, finding a company that meets your prices, but that cannot deliver the project with the quality you need will not do you or your business any good.
