Development of the offset press came in two versions: in 1875 by Robert Barclay of England for printing on tin , and in 1904 by Ira Washington Rubel of the United States for printing on paper. [1]

Lithography was initially created to be an inexpensive method of reproducing artwork. [2] [3] This printing process was limited to use on flat, porous surfaces because the printing plates were produced from limestone . [2] In fact, the word "lithograph" historically means "an image from stone" or "printed from stone". Tin cans were popular packaging materials in the 19th century, but transfer technologies were required before the lithographic process could be used to print on the tin. [2]

The first rotary offset lithographic printing press was created in England and patented in 1875 by Robert Barclay. [2] This development combined mid-19th century transfer printing technologies and Richard March Hoe 's 1843 rotary printing press —a press that used a metal cylinder instead of a flat stone. [2] The offset cylinder was covered with specially treated cardboard that transferred the printed image from the stone to the surface of the metal. Later, the cardboard covering of the offset cylinder was changed to rubber, [2] which is still the most commonly used material.

You can collate, staple, or punch holes in printed paper by installing the optional finisher. Make sure you read the following precautions when using the optional finisher.

Be sure to set the paper size and paper orientation in the printer driver when using duplex printing, booklet printing, combined printing (layout), staple, and punch functions.

When setting Staple or Collate in the printer driver, make sure that the Collate check box is cleared in the application's [Print] dialog box. If Collate is enabled in the application, printing will not be as intended.

A printing press is a device for applying pressure to an inked surface resting upon a print medium (such as paper or cloth), thereby transferring the ink. This was a dramatic improvement on earlier printing methods in which the cloth, paper or other medium was brushed or rubbed repeatedly to achieve the transfer of ink, and accelerated the process. Typically used for texts, the invention and spread of the printing press was one of the most influential events in the second millennium. [1] [2]

The printing press spread within several decades to over two hundred cities in a dozen European countries. [5] By 1500, printing presses in operation throughout Western Europe had already produced more than twenty million volumes. [5] In the 16th century, with presses spreading further afield, their output rose tenfold to an estimated 150 to 200 million copies. [5] The operation of a press became synonymous with the enterprise of printing, and lent its name to a new branch of media, " the press ". [6]

The rapid economic and socio-cultural development of late medieval society in Europe created favorable intellectual and technological conditions for Gutenberg's improved version of the printing press: the entrepreneurial spirit of emerging capitalism increasingly made its impact on medieval modes of production, fostering economic thinking and improving the efficiency of traditional work-processes. The sharp rise of medieval learning and literacy amongst the middle class led to an increased demand for books which the time-consuming hand-copying method fell far short of accommodating. [9]
