Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This investigation is confined to the reproduction of illustrative matter. A working knowledge of the printing processes and of the unique capabilities and limitations of each is essential to managing the production of printed materials. Each printing process is explained and the proper manner of preparing art work is specified. The four most commonly used printing processes for the reproduction of magazines, newspapers, brochures and other printed materials will be examined. The focus is on the mechanics of letterpress, gravure, offset and silkscreen printing and the way in which originals must be prepared to be utilized by these printing processes. Factors which affect the choice of the printing process are examined and suggestions for utilizing the advantages of each method are presented.
