In publishing, printers are both companies providing printing services and individuals who directly operate printing presses.[1]

Printers include:

  • Newspaper printers, often owned by newspaper publishers
  • Magazine printers, usually independent of magazine publishers
  • Book printers, often not directly connected with book publishers
  • Stationery printers
  • Packaging printers
  • Trade printers, who offer wholesale rates within the printing industry

An artist who operates a printing press to execute their own works, especially by hand in limited runs, is usually distinguished from other printers by the term printmaker.
