Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A printer is a company that provides commercial printing services, often also offering typesetting and book-binding services. The term can also refer to people who operate printing presses, or who run printing companies.

With the invention of the moveable type printing press by Johannes Gutenberg around 1450, printing—and printers—proliferated throughout Europe.

Today, printers are found throughout the world. They include:

  • Newspaper printers are often owned by newspaper publishers
  • Magazine printers are usually independent of magazine publishers
  • Book printers, often not directly connected with book publishers
  • Stationery printers
  • Packaging printers
  • Commercial printers, often offering digital and traditional printing services

Someone who makes artistic prints, usually by hand in limited runs, is known as a printmaker.
