Crafts

The term "craft" denotes a skill, usually employed in branches of the decorative arts (e.g. ceramics), or in an associated artistic practice (e.g. lace-making). A key feature of crafts is that they involve a high degree of "hands-on" craftsmanship (hence the colloquial term "handicrafts) rather than just skill with a machine.

Some crafts that are practiced by artists working alone are sometimes referred to by the vague term "studio craft". Metal work, wood turning, glass blowing, and glass art are examples of "studio crafts", as is pottery - notably the studio pottery movement.

Types of printing companies

Printing companies can be categorized based on the type of customers they serve, the types of jobs they print, and the equipment they use. The printing market is often split into 4 segments:

Commercial printers

Commercial printers typically print a wide range of products, from stationery to brochures and magazines. They use a mix of machines, typically including offset and digital presses.

Most commercial printers work for a wide range of customers:

  • Private persons
  • SOHO (small office, home office)
  • SME (small and medium enterprises)
  • Government & large enterprises

Some companies focus on specific markets, such as:

  • Quick printers – printing a variety of small jobs in small run lengths for walk-in customers and local businesses. Copy shops are one type of quick printers.
  • Forms printers
  • Wide-format printers – printing posters, banners, point-of-displays, and other large jobs on paper, canvas, textiles, and other substrates. This can be done using offset, screen printing, and increasingly large format digital inkjet presses.
  • Direct mail printers
  • Security printing – The segment of the printing industry that handles printing banknotes, passports, identity documents, driver’s licenses, vouchers, lottery tickets but also packages for luxury or pharmaceutical products.

Packaging printers

Packaging printers have specialized in printing all kinds of packaging such as boxes, cartons, bags, cans, tags, and labels. Packaging printers mostly use offset, flexor, or digital presses.

Publication printing

These companies focus uniquely on printing publications: newspapers, books, periodicals such as magazines or directories such as the yellow pages. Most printers have specialized in just one type of publication, such as newspapers. General commercial printers also print a significant number of books and magazines.

In-plants

An in-plant is a printing facility that is part of a company or institution. It typically only produces print for its own employer, although sometimes excess capacity is used for commercial printing activities. Typical examples of in-plants are the print centre of a university, the print department of a ministry, or the print division of banks.
