The Preferred Choice for Centuries
In the late 1700’s, a German actor and playwright accidentally discovered a way to duplicate scripts and other documents through a lithography process that involved using a greasy, acid resistant ink on limestone. This discovery revolutionalised printing – before this, an artist had to replicate images by hand. A French engineer then used the lithography process to develop a steam press that became the preferred choice for professional printers worldwide.
Technology has come a long way but offset printing processes still use the same lithography principles that the printing pioneers developed.
