This project is designed and written for graphic designers, artists and publishers, that are interested in publishing to color printing devices. The first part of this project will be an investigation into the role of non-impact printing technology in the 1990s. It will focus on color laser technology as being the most promising for publishers. I will discuss the technology, the advantages, and the disadvantages. Readers might be interested in what is available on the market today and what is expected in the future. The second part of this project will be to create a children's book that is personalized in both text and illustrations. The purpose of this book is two fold to act as a vehicle through which technical problems of publishing with a color laser printer can be explored and to investigate a business opportunity that could apply traditional publishing concepts to new technologies.
