The art of printing has been evolving for thousands of years with a progression from block printing and clay tablets as far back as 3000BCE.
The modern off-‐set printing process, where the inked image is transferred from a plate to a rubber blanket and then to the printed surface has been used since the late 1800s. a modern off-‐set press still used the same principle but, of course, has evolved into a clean and very efficient piece of machinery capable of producing stunning results.
The most recent development is that of the digital press, essentially a 21st century creation that allows a cost effective means of producing short run, full colour prints.
As the image changes with each printed sheet, rather than having long runs produced from a single plate, the digital press is ideal for printing anything from booklets, brochures, catalogues or even posters.
