First, important things were printed like books.But these are REALLY important, not some literature for the mob.
Well, because the mob was quite illiterate at the time.
Then also such fiction was printed, meaning for the reading of the book.
Well, since the last 50 years (even hundreds of them), it's all about printing - books, leaflets, business cards, even shirts, mugs, pens ...Well, really everything. Because you need to build brand awareness at the customer, i.e. printing and marketing is an inseparable couple. Because you can print everything on your T-shirt and have it originally. Well, who would prohibit the rich?
Every copy, that is a print, is commonly called a print. The printing also means various techniques for copying text and graphics using traditional methods, using printing machines, as well as modern computer methods with the use of computer peripherals, such as printers, plotters, etc.- although such prints should be called printouts. The introduction of computer techniques and digital printing to printers has meant that printing is also often understood as printing done on an industrial scale by means of adapted printing machines.
In computing, a printer is a peripheral device which makes a persistent human-readable representation of graphics or text on paper.The first computer printer designed was a mechanically driven apparatus by Charles Babbage for his difference engine in the 19th century; however, his mechanical printer design was not built until 2000.
The demand for higher speed led to the development of new systems specifically for computer use.In the 1980s were daisy wheel systems similar to typewriters, line printers that produced similar output but at much higher speed, and dot matrix systems that could mix text and graphics but produced relatively low-quality output. The plotter was used for those requiring high quality line art like blueprints.Źródło: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Printer_(computing).
