Laser Printing
Mostly used in office equipment, laser printing uses toner adhesion in a heat process to apply "ink" to the sheet.
 
Letterpress
With letterpress, paper is pressed directly onto inked raised metal type of photoengraved images, resulting in a distinctive tactile effect that lithography cannot achieve. Once the most common method of printing, it is now considered a special technique.
 
Line Screen
The number of dots per inch. Printers select a line screen appropriate for the amount of ink that can be put on the paper, dot gain, absorption and brightness.
 
Match Inks
These inks are specified from ink color specification systems, and can be specially made to match a specific color.
