   Printing Method       
   Your choices are...         
   Digital Printing       Digital printing refers to the production of printed media, text, graphics, or hardcopies from digital media. 
   Direct Thermal Printing       Direct thermal printers output sharp, clear text and graphics. They use heat to set images on non-curling, smudge-proof, heavy-stock thermal paper. 
   Engraving       Engraving refers to the scribing or incision of text or graphics on a surface by removal of material via lasers or physical contact. 
   Flexography       Flexography is a rotary-press printing technology that uses water-based inks. Flexographic printers are often used to print on plastic, paper, or cardboard. 
   Hot Stamping       Hot stamping machines use heat and pressure to apply an image onto a surface from a film that carries a thin leaf of color. 
   Ink Jet Printing       Ink jet printers spray ink droplets through a nozzle onto the page. There are two basic types of ink jet printers: thermal and piezo. 
   Laser Printing       Laser printers use a laser beam to produce an image on a drum. The light of the laser alters the electrical charge on the drum, and the drum is then rolled through a reservoir of toner. In turn, the toner is picked up by the charged portions of the drum. Finally, the toner is transferred to the paper through a combination of heat and pressure. 
   Letterpress       Letterpress printers are simple printing presses that use a die with raised type to press text onto the page. 
   Line Printing       Line printers contain a chain of characters or pins that print an entire line at one time. They are very fast, but produce low-quality print. Line matrix printers use the same technology as dot matrix printers, but are much faster over greater workloads. 
   Lithography       Lithography is the reproduction of an image by treating a flat plate with immiscible fluids. In this manner, oil-based paints are transferred to media by the aforementioned flat plate. 
   Offset Printing       Offset printers use a rubber cylinder to transfer an inked image from a printing plate to paper or other media. 
   Pad Printing       Pad printers use silicone pads to print on contoured or difficult plastic surfaces. They are used for relatively small images, text, and graphics. 
   Plotting       Plotters use a pen to produce line art and images on paper or other media. 
   Rotary Press       Rotary presses are similar to letterpresses, but place the raised type on a roller instead of a flat die. 
   Rotogravure       Rotogravure printers engrave photographic images on a cylinder that is then used in a rotary printing press. 
   Screen Printing       Screen printers transfer an image onto a mesh screen by blocking out the surrounding area or areas. 
   Thermal Transfer       Thermal transfer uses heat and pressure to transfer resin-based ink from tiny ribbons directly onto the paper. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary technologies.
