printer is a computer device that creates a lasting representation of visuals or text, generally on paper. Bar code printers are an example of an extended usage for printers, even though most output is human-readable. 3D printers, inkjet printers, laser printers, thermal printers, and more printer types are available.

Charles Babbage devised a mechanically powered computer printer for his difference engine in the nineteenth century, but his mechanical printer concept was not constructed until 2000.

C.R Winston, Teletype, Corporation invented the first continuous inkjet printing mechanism for applying a marking medium to a recording medium, or more specifically, an electrostatic inking equipment and a technique for electrostatically depositing in on controlled portions of a receiving media it 1962. The ink was Clear Print, a red stamp pad ink made by Phillips Process Company of Rochester, NY. The Teletype Inktronic Printer product was provided to consumers in late 1966 as a result of this invention (US3060429).

The EP-101, created by the Japanese firm Epson and introduced in 1968, was the first electronic printer.

Electric typewriters and Teletype machines were commonly employed by the early commercial printers. The requirement for increased speed prompted the creation of new computer-specific solutions. Daisy wheel systems, which were akin to typewriters, line printers, which generated similar output but at a considerably faster pace, and dot matrix systems, which could blend text and images but produced very low-quality output, were all available in the 1980s. Those that needed high-quality line art, such as blueprints, employed the plotter.

The first low-cost laser printer, the HP LaserJet, was introduced in 1984, and the inclusion of PostScript in the Apple LaserWriter the following year ushered in a revolution in printing known as desktop publishing. Like dot-matrix printers, laser printers employing PostScript blended text and graphics, but at quality levels previously only possible from commercial typesetting systems. Most basic printing activities, such as fliers and brochures, were now prepared on personal computers and subsequently laser printed by 1990, with expensive offset printing systems being scrapped.


In terms of flexibility, the HP Deskjet of 1988 provided the same benefits as a laser printer, but generated lower-quality output (depending on the paper) from far less expensive machinery. Dot matrix and daisy wheel printers were quickly displaced from the market by inkjet technology. By the 2000s, high-quality printers of this type had dropped below $100 and were becoming popular.

The fast evolution of internet email in the 1990s and early 2000s essentially eliminated the necessity for printing as a method of transporting documents, and the availability of a broad range of dependable storage methods means that a “physical backup” is no longer necessary. E-book readers and tablet PCs have even replaced the demand for printed output for “offline reading” when on public transportation or in an airplane. Traditional printers are now mostly used for specialized applications, such as printing images or artwork, and are no longer considered a must-have item.

Beginning about 2010, 3D printing sparked widespread attention, permitting the manufacture of actual items with the same amount of work as a brochure printed on an early laser printer. These devices are still in the early phases of development and are not yet widely used.
