A Brief History of Printing

Information has been spread through various forms of printing for thousands of years. Since its inception, print has served as an extremely effective means of communication, enabling ideas to be shared throughout the entire world. In this article, we are going to focus on some of the more recent printing innovations, leading up to today’s cutting-edge document production techniques and machinery.

Inkjet Printing

Initially developed during the 1950s, inkjet printing produces replications of imagery by shooting ink droplets onto paper or other substrates the ink can effectively bond with. After years of improvements, inkjet printers were released to mass consumer markets in the 1970s and 1980s. These printers were most widely produced by HP. Since then, other manufacturers have entered the marketplace, giving individuals and businesses a wide array of high-quality options to choose from.

At FineStar Imaging & ReVitaLaser, our document production experts service and sell many of the latest inkjet printers manufactured by the most trusted brands in the industry. And as certified HP Business Partners, we are able to provide your business access to the best pricing on HP printing products and OEM supplies. Our office equipment sales and leasing department offers affordable document production solutions, meeting the needs of all sizes and types of businesses.

Laser Printing

Originally invented in the 1970s, laser printers use laser beams and a printer drum to fuse printing toner directly to the paper being printed on. Laser printers are best suited for the production of large quantities of documents in short periods of time. In 1984, HP came out with the first laser printer built for the mass consumer market, the LaserJet. To this day, the updated line of HP LaserJet printers remains one of the best-selling, highest quality lines of laser printers available.

At FineStar Imaging & ReVitaLaser, we also specialize in the maintenance and repair of HP LaserJet printers and other types of laser printing products. We offer both monthly and annual service plans, helping your business to keep your printers running smoothly while remaining within your budget. And if your printing machinery is in need of a tune up or one-time fix, our break/fix repair service technicians can stop by your office to get your printing equipment properly functioning as quickly as possible.

Digital Printing

Encompassing both inkjet and laser printing products, digital printing technologies enable individuals and businesses to produce high-resolution documents without the need for overly expensive equipment that can only be installed in large spaces. Over the last couple of decades, advances in digital printing have made it possible for businesses to increase the quality and magnitude of their document production capabilities at a fraction of older price models.
