The old saw about "the more things change the more they stay the same" seems to hold true in the world of bindery and post-press. Sure, technology in our industry is changing on a daily basis, but
one thing that never goes out of fashion is traditional hand-work and old-style techniques.
Complex digital printing equipment allows for the production of high quality jobs in ever-smaller quantities. It's precisely because of this decline in quantities that a little old-fashioned bindery skill can often outperform production equipment.
The popularity of these 4 articles proves the point for me...they continue to get a constant stream of hits daily. In case you missed them, take a few minutes to check them out or pass them along to the new folks in your bindery.
We plan to continue with a series of new articles on hand-work, so if you have a hand-work skill or technique that’s a lifesaver for you, send it our way.
We’ll send you up to $100 if we can use your contribution for a full article.
If it’s an interesting twist on an old article we’ll send you a gift card for at least $25, pending editorial review. And as always, feel free to share your insights and comments below.
