In commercial printing, a printing company prints a file using one of a variety of methods, often involving a printing press. The printing method to be used affects how the digital file must be prepared. Commercial printing methods usually require very specific file preparation or prepress tasks.
With desktop printing, a digital file is sent to a printer connected to a computer (or its network) and the printed page is available in a short while.
Personal greeting cards are typically printed from a desktop printer.
