History of Printing – Infographic

The printing industry has come a long way since its beginnings. It isn’t hard to take for granted that with a click of a button on our computer, smartphone or tablet, we can send a doc to print and it’ll be done within seconds or minutes. In fact, laser printers can print upwards of 200 pages per minute now. 3D printers make food, artificial limbs and furniture! There are printers you can easily fit inside your pocket.

It’s easy to forget that in the olden days, to print a document you’d have to move typeset or in some cases, grind burnt bones to make black ink. To pay homage to those who paved the way for what we so easily take for granted – which is printing – have a look at this infographic created by UPrinting.
