Palm Beach In-plant Bids Fond Farewell to Offset Press in Video
As the Palm Beach County (Florida) Graphics Division retires its Shinohara 662P offset press, the in-plant has created a video looking back fondly at the press and its service over the years.
The in-plant bought the press in 1995, and it has served the shop well. It is going on to a new life in Arkansas, purchased by a print company there to join its two other Shinohara presses. The shop is adding a second four-color Presstek 52DI to replace it.
The video, directed and produced by TJ Lievonen of PBCTV Channel 20 and narrated by manager John D.L. Johnson, is a wonderful ode to a faithful press and the work it has produced for county departments over the years. Watch the video here.
