How to change the print size to normal when printing something from the internet?
My HP 4400 series printer prints in very small letters. How do I increase the print size when printing something from the internet - like forms and questionnaires?
Question answered by Richard J
You can't increase the font size with your printer. It does not have an option for that. You need to increase the size from the source of which you are getting the data from before you print
Example: if you wanted to print a word document, you would go to the taskbar on the top and change the font settings prior to printing.
Or do this
Open up the what you want to print
Left click and highlight either part or the whole area you want printed
Right click the highlighted area and click print preview
Change the box "As laid out on screen" to "As selected on screen" doing this will let you print all or part depending on what is highlighted
In the box Shrink to fit, change it to increase or reduce the size font that you want to use
Click print, and go to Page Range, and make sure you add a dot to SELECT
What is the best printing method for mass printing of molded products?
I have to find a solution for mass printing of molded products such as molded cups, lunch box, trays and plates. I have checked on rotogravure and flexographic machines but I'm not very sure of the machines capability. Please help.
Question answered by It's That Guy
For mass production you probably would want to go with either pad printing or hot-stamping.
Pad printing is done with a big rubber pad. The pad comes down on an inked pad covered by a sort of stencil, then on the product. The pad is flexible so you can print on a curved surface or even a very irregular surface like a golf ball or even a walnut. You can set up fixtures so that several colors can be printed in good registration, and they make very expensive, elaborate multi-stage machines that will do this for high-volume manufacturing. The pads come in all different shapes and sizes. Lots of coffee mugs, keychains, promotional stuff, are made this way.
Hot stamping is similar. There is a die (I think it's called that) that heats up and pushes against a film with the ink on it. The ink melts and goes onto the product. The film is often on a long roll, so the process can be automated with the film advancing one stamp's worth each time.
I am not the best at describing things like this. If you Google either of these you can read all about it.
If the material is metal, or covered with metal, you could use laser engraving. Which happens to be what I do for a living. 8^)
Is there a creative way to print my own poster without the poster printing software?
My printer doesn't have a poster printing feature. Is there a creative (clever) way of printing several pages and coming up with some sort of colorful 18x24 or larger decorative design to frame and hang?
Question answered by Mike1942f
In any image processing program (I use JASC Paint Shop Pro) you can edit the picture into 4 pieces and print the 4 pieces on four pages then trim the pages and glue them to a backing. In PSP there is an option on the File menu for print multiple images that allows you to scale and locate the image on the page. I can't check it this time of night because of printer noise disturbing others in the house, but I believe from stuff I have done before you can position the image so only part of it is on the paper and it will print only that part (bleed the image it is called in printing when you print without white borders) so you could size the image to 18x24 and locate the 4 corners printing each and trimming. This would save editing the image to 4 pieces.
Or use this site to convert your image to pages in a pdf file and print each page http://www.blockposters.com/
There are also freeware poster programs
How did printing help the broadcasting of humanist ideas ?
Around 1450, Gutenberg set up a new technology: printing.
This invention helps the reproduction of texts in numerous copies.
It is a cultural revolution.
Question answered by Tarragon
Oh, C'MON Lemonade--
How hard is it to follow up that question?? Consider--->
1. What book becomes the most printed book?
2. How does this action alone result in a "culutral revolution"? And war?
3. Book publishing means more knowledge is more widely and permanent available. Libraries are the first "computers".
4. Some nations choose NOT to use printing for secular tasks. The Moslems put some presses under the Sancta Sofia but limit is expressly to RELIGIOUS texts.
5. Books enable authors to exist, who can spread their ideas to readers. Seeds of cultural change.
6. PRINTING was not new -- but movable type WAS new and allowed mass production.
7. Printing, arguably, saves Europe from defeat under the heel of Moslem armies, with the Siege of Vienna being their high tide.

How does Digital Printing differ from Traditional methods of Printing?
Digital printing is the act of printing directly onto one of many surfaces after starting from a digitally based image.Digital printing is usually more costly on a per page basis than offset printing methods, which are more established and traditional. However, the difference in prices is usually accounted for by the money that can be saved from not having to engage in all of the in between technical steps that are required when making printing plates. What are the basic elements of differentiation between them?
Question answered by Bill Kozak
Your points are all correct. Offset printing is currently the most common form of printing because of the high volume runs. Plates and chemicals cost money. The difference from digital printing is that when a digital image is made, it must be burned onto an aluminum plate. Just imagine a printer about 50 times the size of your printer at home. Instead of inserting sheets of paper, you insert aluminum sheets. Then it is burned with a laser and then washed off with a special chemical. The plate is then mounted on the press. Not a lot more complicated, but materials and labor are more. A qualified pressman must now run the press. Chemicals and power are consumed on a greater scale.
How to go about getting a printing deal?
How would I be able to get a printing deal for a magazine. I only want to print 200 copies, and I'm able to work out the profit, I just need to find a method of printing it. We know how to make the profit (Through advertisements etc) so, how would I be able to get a printing deal which is tweaked to my needs?
Question answered by Michelle
You will need a full colour printing press. You will also need to learn to use it. This is not easy.
Buy one 2nd hand, unless you can afford a new one.
You will also need a decent guillotine, as you have to be able to trim your magazine. (Using A3 paper, when you fold it to make an A4 magazine, the pages splay out on the right hand edge)
You could use a colour copier, but your production cost would be high,. ( for the toner). It would also have to be able to print A3.
The market place for small run magazines is very limited. Why only 200 copies ? Most magazine runs are much higher than this, unless you go for say a Church magazine, or a local club magazine.
If you advertise you should be able to get some contracts.
Anyway, good luck with your venture.
How did printing presses (such as those of the Gutenburg variety) work?
How did printing presses work? I always assumed that the printer had little metal letters, and that he would arrange these to form the page he wanted to print. But this would take far too long, and would not have allowed for the printing of pictures. So how did they work?
Question answered by Spellbound
Yes, the printer did have small metal letters, and a set of moulds to make new letters when required. Printers would hand make each letter, then set them in a matrix to make a reverse of each page - this was then inked and a page printed. It would take a long time, especially when printing a book as long as the Bible, but is was considerably quicker than the previous technology - hand writing.
Pictures were either etchings, or woodcuts, Daniel Hopfer is credited with being the first person to make prints using etching as a technique.

How did the invention of the printing press affect literature during the Italian Renaissance?
How did the invention of the printing press affect literature and the spread of ideas during the Italian Renaissance?
Question answered by woolf2024
Before the printing press was invented the only people that could afford any type of book were very rich people (not that there was a ton of literature at this point). The printing press made books more affordable. But even bigger than that was the boom in literature created - before the majority of ALL literature had to do with the Roman Catholic church. Monks re-copied entire works - the most popular being the Bible, it would obviously take a very long time. Not to mention it would have been written in Latin. It wasn't until the printing press and Martin Luther came along that the Bible was out in languages OTHER than Latin.
When other could read the Bible for themselves that is when they started disagreeing with the church (Martin Luther - who translated the first Bible into German, started the Protestant Reformation with his 95 Thesis).
Still at this point, not everyone could read - but those that could were clamoring to read more and write too. The more that was published the more the ideas were spread through the country. I would say that the printing press was a big factor in the Italian Renaissance.
Hope that helps - if you need anything else - let me know
