The ten-year reform before printing (Part 1)

the printing industry has been for more than ten years. From the initial pure manual production to the current electronic workflow, the changes brought by technology to printing are surprising

early manual work process structural engineering in order to catch up with the early manual work process, the art work must rely entirely on the art editor to plan the layout and number of pages in advance according to the copy and pictures provided by the customer, and send the text and pictures respectively for production. The production process is as follows:

1. Text:

the art editor calculates the font size, determines the font type, style and marks are complete, and then submits them to typing, If the calculation is wrong (the font is too large or too small), you have to use a large camera to zoom the text to the appropriate size, and then wash it into photo paper for completion

2. Picture:

first determine the size of the picture and calculate the zoom ratio, indicate whether it is necessary to specially modify the tone or color of the original, send the color separation scanning output film, and then proofing by the printing and proofing machine

3. Completion:

the art editor arranges according to the pre planned text and pictures, pastes the text on the layout, draws the frame position with a stylus, copies the layout after completion, pastes the picture sample, and then sends it to the customer for proofreading

4. Modification:

if you need to modify or increase or decrease text after proofreading, you often move in rows in order to add or subtract a word, which makes the art editors feel headache. Moreover, when a manuscript is modified to the end, it is often dirty or the font is skewed; If the customer has a problem with the quality of the picture, in addition to re color separation, the experienced color correction master has to use the exposure principle of negative film and positive film and potion to repair it manually. The repaired film has to be proofed by the proofing machine until the customer confirms that it is correct

5. Making up: making up is divided into "small making up" and "big making up". Before making up a small piece, the making up staff should first send the finished manuscript of the art editor to the photographer for text line photography. Due to the poor control of various windows operating systems, such as windows 98/xp/2000, which are often supported by developing maxtest software in photography and typing, the text thickness on the same page is different. Photographers have to adjust the exposure time according to experience to improve the font thickness. After getting the text negative, the compositor must first repair the film and clean the dirty spots on the text negative before combining the image with the text, and then flatten and copy according to the color of the American design instructions. After the completion of the small version, the plate will be dropped according to the position of the page sequence and put together into a large version. After the completion of the large version, the printing and printing will be carried out

in this traditional workflow, it is inevitable that some parts must be constantly modified. Such a repeated workflow not only affects the whole working time, but also increases many costs. Moreover, such a complex workflow is the most ideal high-temperature resistant material today, and it often causes errors due to human negligence, which affects the quality of printing
