Printing is a process by which text and images are transformed on paper.. It is very often carried out as a large scale industrial process. It plays an essential role in the field of publishing and transaction printing. The development of in the field was carried out by the use of cylinder seals in Mesopotamia developed long time back. The earliest form of the process was woodblock, with existing example in China where they have been using it since the prehistoric times and later on in Egypt in the fourth century. Later developments took place, including the movable type. The movable types were first developed again in China, which was a more efficient process in western languages with their more limited alphabets, developed by Johannes Gutenberg in the fifteenth century.

The most common technique in the field of printing is the Woodblock, mainly used for text, images and patterns that were widely used throughout the globe, most commonly in East Asia and Europe. It originated in China on textiles and later on paper. The earliest existing examples from China are of silk printed with flowers in tri color from the Han dynasty and the woodblock on paper appeared in the mid-seventh century. Examples of woodblock from Rome date to the fourth century.

By the ninth century printing on paper had started its journey, the first complete printed book being the Diamond Sutra. By tenth century thousands of copies of some Sutras were printed and one of the greatest inventions, started paving way to the present day of dominance. With the light of knowledge spreading across the nooks and corners of the world, even the remotest place in the world is getting benefitted from printing industry.
