At present, most common children’s books in China are printed by offset printing process, such as ordinary story books and picture books. Because the lithographic offset printing process is mature and the printing quality is exquisite, it can realize the perfect restoration of the image color, and the cost of mass printing is low. The printing quality of flexographic printing is now close to the level of offset printing, and its application in books is more common in the United States. Since flexographic printing uses water-based inks, it is known as an environmentally friendly printing method and will replace part of offset printing in the future. Screen printing is also widely used in the printing of children’s books. In addition to conventional printing methods, the combination of special printing techniques and raw materials is also a highlight of children’s books.
Among the children’s books, there is a book that sounds when you read it. It uses T M A (T o t a l M e d i a A l l i a n c e all-media printing) technology, which is a new type of printing and publishing mode. This method organically combines the three media of sound, paper printed matter, and the Internet, so that printed publications have a real sense of audio-visual integration.
