Printing and creativity have a long and intertwined history. In the 15th Century, Guttenberg’s printing press allowed for the mass production of printed material – letting writers and artists convey their ideas to a potentially gigantic market.
Today’s modern, internet-enabled devices, such as Samsung’s line of multi-function printers (MFPs), customizable with the Smart UX Center, have far surpassed even the wildest of Guttenberg’s dreams. However, the core principle behind the world’s first printing devices still holds true today – providing a way to spread creative ideas in the form of pictures and text.
Even digital natives have an instinctive bond with creative ideas when expressed through print. While any parent of a young child will attest that babies also enjoy playing with mobile phones, infants do not interact with these devices as actively or instinctively they do with books. Printed words and pictures are, it seems, intrinsically linked with developing creativity.
Even in the early days of the digital era, scientists realized that adults also read from screens less accurately and less comprehensively. If you want people to really digest and connect with your creative ideas, and to truly understand them as you intended, there is no substitute for printing them out.
Combining the link between print and creativity with the needs of a digitized society is a challenge for designers and printers alike. Fortunately, this is an area where Samsung MFPs can provide help.
Why Designers Love to Print
No matter which sphere of design your business works in – graphics, architecture, interior planning or even digital design – your staff members probably need to interact with printers on a fairly regularly basis.
Fortunately, MFPs have far surpassed the basic functions of printing, scanning and copying. They have instead become capable of producing professional-quality images almost instantaneously, and are thus regarded as an invaluable tool for the modern designer.
Samsung has matched printing solutions with the creative industry’s needs, incorporating high-quality print output technology and polymerized toner capacity. Samsung MFPs’ unique Rendering Engine for Clean Page (ReCP) function lets designers print mock-ups and vivid proofs with sharper graphics and clearer text than ever.
In the creative industry, freedom is key, and solutions that increase the quality of your product are sure to help your employees unleash their creativity.
A Secure Design Process
During the early stages of a project’s development, team members often send out renderings to clients and other parties for editing and idea collaboration purposes. This can be challenging for firms that work with clients who are based in other parts of the city – or even in other parts of the planet.
When working with clients on a remote basis, security can often be a major concern. Confidentially is most often an absolute must, something that many cloud providers cannot absolutely guarantee. In this respect, Samsung is different.
Samsung recognizes that security is a pressing concern when it comes to mobile printing and cloud services. That is why it has teamed up with companies such as PrinterOn to help bolster security yet further. Measures include comprehensive end-to-end encryption, ensuring potentially sensitive materials stay secure.
In addition, any business can tap into its creative ideas bank and use Samsung MFPs to boost workflow and efficiency. Thanks to NFC innovations, users in all industries can simply tap their mobile devices against a sensor to enable printing via the Samsung Mobile Print app. It is not only a boon for designers who want to print faster, but also for companies who want to safeguard their design ideas.
In this way, the design process can now move with more fluidity, efficiency and safety than ever. More secure input and output means more success – and, ultimately, much happier clients.
When it comes to creating a preview copy of a book, a report or a screenplay, most would admit that only a hard copy will do.
As many jobs of this sort involve hundreds or even thousands of pages, it is absolutely crucial that publishers and writers have access to printers that can flawlessly print their work – without taking all evening to do so.
Samsung’s MX7 line of MFPs include a 2,250-sheet booklet finisher and a 3,250-sheet high-volume finisher, which automatically staples up to 65 sheets. The MX7 models help keep documents such as books, screenplays and reports organized while printing. After all, nothing can be more frustrating than disorder when it comes to big print jobs.
As publishers are often not compensated until after their work has been purchased or published, cost-efficiency is a high priority for anyone in this industry. Fortunately, Samsung MFPs offer best-in-class figures for maximum monthly duty, resulting in high-durability and reduced overheads.

Although you do not have to be a creative professional to get the most out of Samsung Printing Solutions, many in the industry agree that Samsung services and MFPs meet their requirements to a tee. And with printing solutions that adapt to meet your company’s precise needs, there has never been a better time to exercise your creativity.
