Word of the day: Laser Printing

Posted by:

Static electricity is the principle behind laser printing which uses a revolving cylinder, a laser beam, fine powder toner, and heat to create images on paper. Black and white lasers (black toner) are relatively inexpensive and common in many homes and small offices. Color lasers are typically found in service bureaus and commercial printers and may be used to produce high-resolution color digital proofs. Adobe PostScript capabilities found in many laser printers make them popular with graphic designers and desktop publishers who often utilize EPS images and PostScript files. Hewlett-Packard’s PCL language is another popular command language used by laser printers.
