Printing-press operators are employed by commercial printers, who print business cards, flyers, letterheads and envelopes; by in-house printing departments in large corporations; and by newspapers, magazines and other publishing firms. These workers operate printing presses to produce different documents. They start off with a negative prepared by a computer-graphics designer and then prepare the aluminum plate that will be used to print the document. They mount the negative on a plate and expose it to light. They then develop the plate by soaking it in special solutions, a process somewhat similar to that used in photo development. The next step involves filling the ink fountains and making the necessary colour adjustments before sending the document to print. Finally, printing-press operators perform certain finishing tasks, such as trimming, folding and assembling the pages.
