Every time you get hold of a reading material such as a newspaper, a magazine, or even a simple leaflet, have you bothered to ask yourself how that material comes to be?
No, we are not asking about the writing process – how the author gathers his or her data, screens the data to come up with useful information, and puts it in black and white or in digital form, (the more common mode of writing nowadays).
We are talking about the processes that are taking place in the printing shop.
5 Basic Printing Press Processes
As far as our company Crystal Graphic Equipment, Inc. is concerned, there are five basic processes that reading materials (in hard copies) go through before they hit the newsstands, bookstores and other similar outlets. These are:
- Die cutter
These five processes have their own subprocesses, so to speak.
Pre-press, for instance, has three subprocesses. These are: computer to plate process, plate processing and plate burning.
The press proper doesn’t have any significant subprocess but it boasts of a wide array of printing machines to choose from – there’s this single color printer, a two-color variety, a three-color press, up to a ten-color monster of a machine.
If you prefer a continuous form (of paper) you can also have it here.
Post-press proves to be a hive of diverse subprocesses. You can encounter in here the collators, stitchers, those involved in numbering, perfing and scoring, tabbing, labeling, folding and cutting.
So are the bindery and die cutter.
House of Machines, Equipment and Tools
That’s the complicated route the newspaper, magazine or novel you may be holding right now undergoes before it is being enjoyed by its readers.
Each of the above processes and subprocesses has a machine or two to do the job. Just mentally calculate the number of machines, equipment and gadgets involved in producing a single newspaper.
Indeed, a printing press is a virtual house of all these equipment, not to mention the operators manning them.
You may ask now: where to get all these machines and tools?
That’s a good question. And a good question deserves a similarly good answer.
