Leaflets, banners or posters are the main means of advertising for many companies, especially for local and small ones. Well designed leaflets or business cards can attract many customers, and badly made to scare away and discourage our brand, company or product.

Without it, printing would not be possible.
However, it was not until the twentieth century that more and more types of paper for various applications were invented. And now we have paper chalked, white, slippery, coated with plastics, etc.
Solid ink printers, also known as phase-change printers, are a type of thermal transfer printer.
They use solid sticks of CMYK-coloured ink, similar in consistency to candle wax, which are melted and fed into a piezo crystal operated print-head.
The paper then passes over the print drum, at which time the image is immediately transferred, or transfixed, to the page.Solid ink printers are most commonly used as colour office printers, and are excellent at printing on transparencies and other non-porous media.
Solid ink printers can produce excellent results.
Previously, solid ink printers were manufactured by Tektronix, but Tek sold the printing business to Xerox in 2001.Źródło: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Printer_(computing).
