Combined printing is to print products that belong to different customers and have the same paper, color number, and printing volume in a large version, in order to make full use of the larger printing area of the larger printing press, and print multiple small format prints at a time. In order to take advantage of mass production and large-scale printing, share printing costs, save plate making and printing costs. For traditional printing, the larger the printing batch, the lower the cost of the shared single page, so the combination printing can greatly reduce the production cost compared to the special printing.

The color consistency may not be very good. Only regular non-specific features can be printed. Business requested.
