A nostalgic look at tools used every day in the graphics industry. Let’s just say in a time NOT so long ago… If you were involved with printing you knew about hot type vs. cold type, what galleys and headline type were. Do you know what CompuGraphics machines were used for, or when you
would use Pro White? Usage of letter press vs. offset. Or that offset required everything to be pasted down, with rubber cement until waxers were state of the art. Type galleys, headlines and position only (PO) photos where adhered to boards to be shot by a production camera, which exposed the film which were developed into negatives. The negative where stripped into forms/flats. Photo where shot separately, photos needed to be shot with screens placed at precise angles.
