Summary: Printing Technology takes readers on a journey from the beginnings of the graphic arts industry through today's cutting-edge digital technology. Now in its fifth edition, this popular book has been reorganized to provide readers with a firmer grasp of how digital printing technologies are revolutionizing the industry. Traditional analog printing methods are reviewed in the first six chapters, establishing the foundation from which readers will develop an understandin
g of the state-of-the-art technological infrastructure for digital publishing that supports today's new, digital workflow. Subsequent chapters lead readers through the complexities of digital data, digital prepress operations, printing techniques, and finishing options. Since technology has also impacted the way business is conducted today, this edition also features information on computer estimating and job tracking, plus use of the internet as a portal for connecting printing facilities with customers, vendors, and suppliers. Discussion of customer-defined quality management, including introductions to total quality management (TQM) and statistical process control (SPC) techniques, is also included in the final chapter to ensure long-term success in this highly technical, fast-changing, and increasingly competitive field.

Benefits:
  • Nearly every chapter has been extensively updated based on new technologies, including expanded sections on digital printing and inkjet technologies.
  • All file formats are explored, equipping readers for the modern "premedia" environment within which digital content is repurposed for specific print, CD-ROM and internet needs.
  • Critical technologies studied in depth include PostScript and PDF, digital workflow concerns, color management and the new internet-based print management models.
  • Coverage of estimating and production control integrates state-of-the-art printing technology possibilities into the reality of today's business environment.
  • An all-new appendix on health and safety issues has been added, ensuring that readers are well prepared to work in today's high-tech printing environment.
  • An updated glossary, and an emphasis on how the technological infrastructure supports the increasingly digital nature of the industry, make this book invaluable to professionals and novices alike.
