Growing up in the new millennium, I have become accustomed to there being at least one computer in the house. In addition to being outside as much as I could as a child, I went downstairs to my dad’s home office so that I could play around on his computer.
Like any other child my age, I played the CD-ROM version of Backyard Baseball, and made sure I had both Pablo Sanchez and Barry Bonds on my team.
I also taught myself how to use the early versions of Microsoft Word and Excel.
I’d write stories, fill out attendance sheets for nonexistent events, and placed WordArt wherever possible.
The best part for me, though, was going to my dad’s work office and getting to print what I created. I thought it was amazing that what I made on a screen could be physically placed in my hands.
Fast forward several years later, and I’m still amazed by the technological advancements in both computers and printers. I truly get the best of both worlds with my job; the majority of my work is on a computer, and we have recently joined the laser printing industry.
What is laser printing?
Laser printing differs from the average home or office printer. The paper quality is much greater, and there’s no bleed, running, or smearing.
It’s also not compact. In fact, depending on the machine, laser printers can be several feet long and approximately three feet wide.
Laser printers are capable of full-color printing, stacking (separating print jobs), and finishing (stapling). In addition, they can print up to 100 pages per minute and 250,000 pages per month, with high-capacity feeding (large paper trays). It’s no wonder they are so large in size; they can complete some heavy-duty print jobs!
What can a laser printer create?
A laser printer can produce pretty much any paper product that comes to mind:
- Full-color restaurant menus
- Photo prints
- Promotional materials
- Wedding invitations
- Business cards
The options are not limited to the above list, however. With a variety of paper types and sizes, it’s simple to create any project.
