Printing FAQ

Stroud Printers for over 40 years

What is the process of printing?

Printing is a process that involves the transfer of ink onto paper.

The printing process starts with an original document, which is then scanned and converted into digital data. This data can be sent to a printer or stored in a file on your computer.

Printers work by using tiny dots called pixels to create images from the digital data they receive. These dots are arranged in patterns called pixels, and each pixel has its own colour value (red, green, blue). When these colours are combined together they form an image on paper!

If you want to print something out for yourself or someone else, just send it over to us in Stroud! We’ll take care of all the hard stuff so you don’t have to worry about it anymore!

You can also come to visit our office if you want some help picking out what kind of print would best suit your needs. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to answer any questions you might have along the way too!

What is printing and types of printing?

Printing is the process of producing a physical copy of something.

There are many different types of printing, including offset lithography and screen printing. Offset lithography is used for high-volume print jobs such as newspapers and magazines. Screen printing involves pressing ink through a mesh onto paper or other material to create an image.

Printing can be done on any type of paper, but it’s typically done on a coated stock that has been treated with sizing (a glue) to make it more receptive to inks and dyes. Paper sizes range from postcard size up to poster size sheets, which are usually cut down into smaller pieces before being fed into the press so they feed evenly through the machine without jamming up at one end or getting stuck together at another end. The most common sheet sizes are 8 1/2 x 11 inches (legal size) and 11x17 inches (tabloid).

Postcards may be printed on letter-size sheets, while greeting cards may be printed on cardstock measuring 5x7 inches or 4x6 inches; these measurements refer to how wide each piece is when folded in half lengthwise along its short edge. Poster boards come in various thicknesses depending upon their intended use; thinner boards tend to have less show-through than thicker ones do because they don't absorb as much ink during printing as thick ones do. Boards also vary according to whether they're made from recycled fibres.

Digital Printing or Litho Printing?

You’ve been printing for years, and you want to know the difference between digital and litho printing.

Lithography is the process of creating images or designs on paper by transferring ink from an image plate onto paper. It's also known as "offset" printing because it uses a rubber-covered metal plate that has been offset with respect to the sheet being printed.

Digital Printing is a type of printmaking in which artwork is reproduced, transferred or copied digitally from one device to another (such as from computer screen to printer) without producing any physical material such as paper or canvas.

If you're looking for something more cost-effective than litho printing but still want high-quality prints, then digital might be your best bet! Or if you need something fast - like posters for an event - then digital could be just what you need! And finally, if you're looking for something that will last longer than litho prints would - like business cards - then go with digital! There are so many reasons why people choose this over other types of printing methods!

What do you mean by printing?

Printing is the process of producing a hard copy of an image or text on paper.

Printing can be done by using a variety of machines, including offset presses and digital printing systems. The most common type of printing is called letterpress printing which uses metal movable type to print text and images in ink onto paper.

  • Printing was invented in China during the Han dynasty (202 BC – 220 AD).
  • The first printed book was published by Johannes Gutenberg with his invention, the Gutenberg press, around 1455 AD. -In 1844 William Bullock created a steam-powered rotary machine that could produce 1,100 impressions per hour; this led to newspapers being able to publish multiple copies at once instead of just one at time like before then.
  • In 1877 Richard Hoe developed an improved rotary press that could print 10 pages per minute rather than only six pages per minute like previous models had been capable of doing; this innovation helped lead to newspaper circulation increasing from 100,000 papers sold each day in 1880s America up to 400 million papers sold each day by 1920s.
