In the printing industry things change very fast!
It was not long ago that people were stripping up film on off set presses and then the next day they have computer to plate machines!
I’ve only been in this industry for about 5 years now and already I have seen some amazing changes.
Not only in the press room, but throughout the entire production process and equipment at our diposal.
It is interesting that in a few short years, we have moved offset work to digital printing presses to increase personalized communications and allow for shorter runs.
This is one of the reasons why the printing industry is still a $640 BILLION dollar industry and drives over $3.8 TRILLION in related services!!!!
People say print is dead, when actually print is evolving.
