PRINTING INNO-VENTIONSWritten by Florie Lyn Masarate
During early times, when machines were not yet capable of doing human chores, art of printing was done by hands. Everything has to be written. Imagine working and doing things manually like writing your report and having to rewrite them over and over to make copies. Pretty exhausting, isn’t it?
But then, typewriter made a dramatic appearance in printing industry. Although slow and manually operated, it was considered as one of greatest invention that time. Making writing an easy task, it immediately took place of handwriting and was a big success. The only thing that people had to do is click on desired keys. Better than handwriting.
Next came Xerox machine. It made printed materials available to everyone. The task of making copies was cut into half as this machine gave reproduction another meaning. Duplicates can be made from a single copy. The Xerox machine revolutionized repetition of prints that were usually manually done over and over to produce desired number of copies. This machine made printing a menial task of putting a copy inside it and wait.
Comes computer, with its soft buttons and wide screen and of course, its printer. Prints can now be seen clearly. Mistakes corrected without getting paper dirty and can even help with your spellings and grammar. All that needed to be done is to input number of copies required, push a button and then after a few minutes, copies done.
