Printing Procedures:

  1. The relevant entity requests work and receives the materials to be printed.
  2. The data entry/requesting entity computerizes the information and determines the technical specifications.
  3. A dedicated designer performs the design process.
  4. A specialist technician sorts colors and pulls films.
  5. The editing artist edits and directs the material.
  6. A specialist technician makes the plate with acidification preparing for printing on the special machine according to the technical specifications based on quantity, measurement and paper quality.
  7. The printer prints the material on custom printing machines.
  8. Finally, after processing four colors, the required material is set for two hours until the color is fixed and folded on the folding machine. Then comes the assembly process where fascicles are Each fascicle contains 16 pages grouped in the form of a book or magazine and the assembly process is done manually. This process is followed by the process of thriftiness/ stapling or using glue on a special machine called hot glue which is followed by the packaging phase where the cover is formed and bounded. Then comes the process of editing (cutting) and finally the final cutting stage (editing) where the required material is assembled.
  9. Finally, the material is delivered to the agency concerned.
  10. The printed materials are kept for reference when needed.


Printing machines:

  • Offset printing machine

This machine prints many copies of the printed material up to 1000 copies in four colors so that each color is done separately. Therefore, printing 200 copies would not be economically viable. This machine measures 70 × 100.

  • Ricoh Photocopier

This machine prints in 4 colors where each color is printed separately. It measures A3 and is smaller than the previous machine.

  • High-speed speed printers:

These machines print one black color in large quantities that it prints 60 copies per minute.

  • Digital printing machine:

This machine prints materials using full colors, once and in small quantities, below 300 copies.


* Technical binding

The staff in charge of the technical binding does the binding process for the university's books, banners, and certificates in the hard cover.
