The actual printing is finally done by pressing down the platen, which presses the paper onto the inked type. This first pressure on a paper is called face printing. When the paper is then printed with a new set on the reverse side, the so-called perfecting takes place. The pins ensure that the type area on the front and back of the paper is exactly the same. The finished printed sheet is then hung up to dry. For the whole process, two journeymen were employed at the press: one who inked the type with the ink balls, and the actual printer, who operated the long handle attached to the screw to press down the platen. Unlike the typesetters, these assistants did not have to be particularly well educated, but mainly strong.
