Printing with PostScript

PostScript is a language that tells the printer how to output the file you are sending to it. PostScript is the de facto standard in the printing industry and is preferable because of its high-quality output of even complicated documents.

If you have printed a document from any Adobe program, not just Illustrator, you have experienced PostScript printing without really thinking about it. This goes for printing to high-end devices at an output agency or printing to the laser printer in your office. For the most part, you shouldn't have to put a lot of thought into PostScript, unless you suddenly have problems printing your documents and generate the dreaded PostScript error.
