According to the paper and machine used, there are two printing methods:
Its advantage is that it is fast, and that, sometimes, allows to print both sides at the same time. Then, there are two variations for this method: with ink drying or without ink drying.
The first one has an ink drying system used while the paper goes out, thus allowing to print quickly. In general, this type of printing offers a good photographic reproduction. Its main disadvantage is the cost: the work of these printers requires many hands operating it. These are convenient for big print runs, as in the case of newspapers and magazines.
The other variation of the «paper roller» method is without ink drying, generally dried through natural air. They hardly ever have a high image reproduction quality. Since costs are lower, it is convenient to come here when the budget is small and you wish to make a small print run.
The other printing method is the one where printers use paper sheets. These have the advantage of high image definition. They are generally used to print small print runs. It also has the highest definition of all of them, is much slower and therefore more expensive. This method is used for small or excellent quality projects, as three-page leaflets or catalogues.
These two methods and its variations have advantages and disadvantages, depending on the case. According to quality, quantity and budget factors, you can see what best meets your needs.
