Printing is needed, no one has doubts about it, but are they just as necessary as 20 years ago? This is a debatable issue, but certainly the market needs and consumer demand have changed a bit.
The production of marketing materials increased significantly - leaflets, banners, promotional leaflets, and advertisements - and decreased the production of books and magazines, mainly due to the popularization of the Internet.
Programs used in the print shop and not onlyThere are more and more graphics processing programs, from the most popular Photoshop to less known and free ones like Inkscape.
Professionals usually use one or two proven programs, which translates into their high productivity.
In the work of graphics or DTP operator you usually need a program for processing vector and raster graphics.

Short about printing
The printing era has been pretty good since Gutenberg.
First, important things were printed like books.
But these are REALLY important, not some literature for the mob.
Well, because the mob was quite illiterate at the time.
Then also such fiction was printed, meaning for the reading of the book.
Well, since the last 50 years (even hundreds of them), it's all about printing - books, leaflets, business cards, even shirts, mugs, pens ...
Well, really everything.
Because you need to build brand awareness at the customer, i.e. printing and marketing is an inseparable couple. Because you can print everything on your T-shirt and have it originally. Well, who would prohibit the rich?
