In computing, a printer is a peripheral device which makes a persistent human-readable representation of graphics or text on paper.
The first electronic printer was the EP-101, invented by Japanese company Epson and released in 1968.
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.
This is a very convenient solution, because you can immediately overcome mistakes made by potential customers when placing an order. Often, they send a bad file in the wrong format, with the web printing this error is still captured by the script itself accepting the order.
Multifunction devices offer increasingly larger scanning resolutions, less margin, larger formats, etc. But still, such home printers are far behind the professional equipment used in professional printers.Not to mention the much larger range of techniques used, which have nothing to do with those we know from home printers.
