They are ordered wholesale and also consumed in bulk. For each order, the production costs are optimized, and the appropriate technique and type of printing is selected.
Graphic designers, DTP operators and printers deal with this.
Printing at printing plants and printing plants
Paints, inks, paper, toners, foils and other consumables - these are things that can not be missing from printing plants.
They are responsible for the quality of the printout and as soon as something is wrong they are the first to be targeted by the dissatisfied boss.
Their work is quite hard and I have to admit that you have to really have a fuss to do it.
Work after hours, maximum focus and responsibility - definitely not work for everyone.
Printing labels for various types of products has grown significantly in recent times.
Along with new and efficient printing machines, labels can be ordered even at very low costs without worrying about the exorbitant rate.
Of course, large outlays are still cheaper, but this difference is not as big as a few years ago.
The potential market for low-cost prints is small, local companies producing small quantities of goods. Recently also a lot of home brewers begin to label their own beers, of course not for trade, but for example for contests.
In addition, we have producers of honey, preserves and organic food, where the demand is rather small expenditure labels.
Home and Professional Printers
Who today does not have a printer at home.
Their prices are becoming more affordable and operating costs lower.
Multifunction devices offer increasingly larger scanning resolutions, less margin, larger formats, etc.
But still, such home printers are far behind the professional equipment used in professional printers.
Not to mention the much larger range of techniques used, which have nothing to do with those we know from home printers.
Printed roll, solvent, water, anhydrous - long to exchange.
The quality of such printouts is higher, which entails the obvious higher costs of printing itself.
