It is clear that the printing industry is transforming mostly because of digital advances. But what could carry the future? Modern technology has transformed the contact world over the last few decades. Print media has been King for years.
From the polished, sparkling celebrity magazines to the pocket-sized brochure that heralded the launch of a new company, things have undergone a big transformation. It might appear like printing is breathing its last, but that's not the case.
Of course, the only constant factor is transition, and even though printing is not going to die out, businesses should face more difficulties. So what are the challenges and changes printing companies have to be ready for?
The world is not about to go paperless
The planet isn't going to become paperless. The death trumpets for print media have been sounding since the first screen was illuminated. But, thankfully, it's an end that hasn't turned up. The screens threatened to dethrone paper, but our reliance on it is so rooted that we still have a decent road to go before that could happen.
Although businesses like Yellow Pages have declared their removal from the use of printed telephone directories, there are still many aspects of life that cannot exist without printing on paper. Contracts and other formal records are still, for even the most part, expected to be printed. At EazyPrintz, we offer printing services such as xerox printing, custom canvas prints, custom advertising posters, business cards and more from as low as a dollar for a xerox printing.
Hardware printing can be simplified
Technology does not have to replace everything entirely. In most cases, it has only altered them, making them smaller and more intuitive to use. Take the computer itself, for example. When it first came onto the scene, it was a diabolical combination of cogs and levers that would fill up an entire room. Technological advancements have been able to fit even more computing power right into your hands. The same is to be experienced with offset and digital printers. While they will not go away, they will be influenced by the digital world. As of now, most printing companies in Singapore will have printers that can be fed instructions via a touch panel instead of clumsy buttons. However due to the current covid-19 situation and PDPA purposes, our staffs are always ready to expedite the prints for you!
Printers will be part of the ‘Internet of Things (IoT)
There's also another face of technology that's getting bolder and craftier by the day. It is called the Internet of Things, where all users are able to tap into a single central database of information. This would be another means for printing machinery to adjust. You will be able to plug into the cloud and collect printing information and directions from there.
Future of printing in the business
The largest portion of income in the printing industry has been for corporate promotion purposes. Companies relied on digital and offset printers to bulk posters, catalogues, and publicity brochures. Although technology continues to shift the role of these products in the branding of company arsenals, they remain effective.
