The task is easy and simple in theory, however, one small error of the DTP operator and the circulation of several thousand copies of newspapers can be thrown away.In this work, many things may go wrong: change of paper for another, new printer with other inks, incorrect conversion of colors.
There are also typo errors, bad placement of some element or just a few details.All this can end very badly and bring big losses - so it's work under stress and tension, because if something goes wrong it usually will be just for the DTP operator.
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.
However, the price you have to pay for the possibility of online orders can be deterred by smaller printing houses and printing plants from such an investment. .
