More about Print Media Technology

The print media technology professional is responsible for all aspects in the production of printed materials, most often using traditional ink on paper, but also newer digital technologies like toner on paper.

This begins with planning and preparation, running the machines efficiently and effectively to ensure high quality, and cleaning up once the run is complete.

They need to understand the complex machinery involved, know the different types of paper, operate cutting equipment, and even be able to mix custom inks at the customer’s request.
