The Services to Printing industry has been significantly affected by technological developments in the way information and images are disseminated. The online revolution is eroding printing markets, with digital technologies encroaching on some traditional printing services (like plate making). The industry has responded by moving into the digital space by working on digital publications and websites, and by providing creative and design services, digital photography, digital asset management, facilities management and digital printing.
Services to printing consist of performing prepress and postpress services. Prepress services are the steps required to turn a design into final form, ready for final printing on a printing press or for a digital publication. Postpress services are required after printing or publication, such as binding, finishing and distribution, as well as asset management.
