A History of Printing

Inspiration is key at Canright. It is a part of everything we do. To celebrate what inspires us, each week we present Canright Inspiration.

This week, Collin presented on the history of typography and printing.

Collin says, “check out my inspiration presentation to my firm, drawing in my experience growing up at my family’s newspaper, The Chesterton Tribune. I covered stories I heard of my grandfather learning to set type by hand and seeing him run a Linotype machine. Plus the paper’s early move to offset printing and mine with desktop and digital publishing. 600 years of history on three generations and told in 30 minutes.”
