About Us


How to Print – Printing Terms

How to Print is a web-based free content project based on an openly-editable model. We welcome all persons with any level of experience to contribute articles or suggestions to the development of the most comprehensive location for Printing related terms, definitions, history and facts.

How to Print Collaborators

How to Print is written collaboratively by largely anonymous Internet volunteers who write without pay. Anyone with Internet access can write and contribute to How to Print articles (except in certain cases where editing is restricted to prevent disruption and/or vandalism). Users can contribute anonymously, under a pseudonym, or with their real identity, if they choose. How to Print’s community has developed many policies and guidelines to improve this site; however, it is not a formal requirement to be familiar with them before contributing.

How to Print Approval Process

Every contribution may be reviewed or changed. The expertise or qualifications of the user are usually not considered. This is possible since How to Print’s intent is to cover existing knowledge which is verifiable from other sources. Original research and ideas which haven’t appeared in other sources are therefore excluded. Anyone is welcome to add information, cross-references, or citations, as long as they do so within How to Print’s editing policies and to an appropriate standard. Substandard or disputed information is subject to removal. Users need not worry about accidentally damaging How to Print’s content when adding or improving information, as other editors are always around to advise or correct obvious errors, and How to Print’s software is carefully designed to allow easy reversal of editorial mistakes.

How to Print’s Advantage and Disadvantages

Because How to Print is a live collaboration, it differs from a paper-based reference source in several ways. In particular, some articles tend to be more comprehensive and balanced, while other articles may be one sided or contain misinformation. Users need to be aware of this to obtain valid information and avoid misinformation that has been recently added and not yet removed. However, unlike a paper reference source, How to Print is continually updated, with the creation or updating of articles on various print related subjects within hours, minutes, or even seconds, rather than months or years for printed reference sources.
