Old-time Presses In A Modern World
Old-fashioned printing techniques are kept alive at historic print shops around the country.
If you're struggling with a less-than-modern press in your in-plant, take heart: Compared with the printers of old, your press is like lightning.
How would you like it if your top press speed was 180 sheets an hour, and setting type for one sheet required half a day of labor? This is what being a printer meant in the 18th and 19th centuries.
