Check out out our new book: Printing in the Dark


Printing in the Dark


The dream is printing in the dark. The idea that you simply load the machines up with paper, turn the lights off, and let it print. In this scenario there are no skilled press operators, no items requiring constant mechanical adjustment by skilled operators. The pressman in effect becomes a copier operator, and with the pesky mechanical craft based issues removed. In this scenario, the automation of the printing industry is complete. For the owners of printing plants they will achieve predictable printing with low labor costs. One operator can load many machines, be less skilled, and get the same results time after time. Printing becomes true manufacturing.

Printing in the Dark is a collection of articles and essays on printing and technology, updated quarterly. It can be ordered from Amazon as a Kindle for 99 cents, or as a hardcopy book for slightly more.
