About DTP Operators

The DTP operator is a responsible person in printers, publishing houses and wherever materials are printed in large quantities, for the correct preparation of files that will be printed. The task is easy and simple in theory, however, one small error of the DTP operator and the circulation of several thousand copies of newspapers can be thrown away. In this work, many things may go wrong: change of paper for another, new printer with other inks, incorrect conversion of colors. There are also typo errors, bad placement of some element or just a few details. All this can end very badly and bring big losses - so it's work under stress and tension, because if something goes wrong it usually will be just for the DTP operator.


Project is not everything

Everyone likes when the leaflet is colorful, aesthetic and legible. However, a lot depends on the project itself, in other words, graphics preparing the files for printing. He must be aware of the basic matters regarding composition and layout. A well-made leaflet will certainly have a better effect than a short, ugly one.

A lot also depends on the printing house and the selection of paper and the type of printing. A leaflet looks better on shiny and smooth paper than on a torn parchment. The type of paint and the method of printing is also not insignificant, and its selection is best entrusted to a specialist in this topic or to pass on a printing company that has extensive experience with each type of orders.


DTP work programs

There are more and more graphics processing programs, from the most popular Photoshop to less known and free ones like Inkscape. Professionals usually use one or two proven programs, which translates into their high productivity.

In the work of graphics or DTP operator you usually need a program for processing vector and raster graphics. You can also include word processors, programs provided by print equipment manufacturers, to the pool of programs needed for such work.
