Linotype as a Vocation

Well, not THESE days. But I love these old career films.

You know I may have posted this and one or two more this time last year...

Interesting look back in time, and these were the days where apprenticship was necessary!

I wish linotype was still around.
It's become difficult to find good alloy anymore.

My first real job out of college was assistant production manager in a graphic arts plant. We did mostly multi-color offset, but there was also silkscreening, letterpress, and die-cutting.

This On Demand Printing has been a real game changer, not to mention the Internet.

[And, what with the Civil Rights Act, the gender-specific language in the narration of that film would never cut it today.]

Thanks for the memories.
