Product Description

The purpose of this 32-page guidebook is not to serve as a “general operation manual" but rather to deal with a fundamental understanding of the printing processes. It discusses print production by the various methods of printing— lithography, digital, gravure, relief, and screen. Because of the rapid development and use of digital printing (toner and inkjet), emphasis on digital printing is in both the background information and the hands-on activity. Printing Processes covers the following units:

• The Printing Press, Offset Lithography, Flexography, Gravure, Screen Printing, Xerography

• An emphasis on Digital Printing, toner-based Sheet-fed, sheet-fed Inkjet, continuous-feed Inkjet, large format Inkjet and unusual printing facts

The hands-on activity, completed in InDesign, emphasizes the following procedures:

• Guidelines for research and writing, fair use guidelines, image preparation, Photoshop adjustment procedures, placing pictures into body text, and creating a final layout

• Four-page signature imposition, creating an InDesign PDF, printing from InDesign & Acrobat, the print menu, page setup, and final print selections

• The Glossary, linked to page numbers, contains 19 frequently used terms, and there are 17 multiple choice test questions with answers and a prepared answer sheet.
