In my experience, a “smiling British printer” is an oxymoron , a bit like “military intelligence” or “Microsoft Works”.

Usually s/he is grumbling about the lack of orders in the pipeline, poor response from equipment suppliers’ service teams or slow payers amongst the customer base.
At 9.00 PM British Summer Time, it is 4:00 PM Eastern Time in the US and 10:00 PM Central European time in Paris, but the one common factor every Wednesday at this time is #Printchat. There are people in Portland, Oregon who now know my taste in beer (Guinness incidentally), people in California who know my travel habits, and people in Denmark who that know I like boats.

I have rather a soft spot for Betty. She has been part of my life since 1975 when I was first introduced to her and I have always tried to see her every couple of years, for tea and a cake. I have missed a couple of times over the decades, but Betty has been a regular fixture for nearly forty years now. My wife doesn’t mind, she’s rather fond of her as well and will often come along when I am visiting her.

In today’s age of smart phones and iPads, it’s almost impossible to imagine our world of the 1960s, when everything was manual. Yet, Efi Arazi had already envisaged a digital world: if he could combine the digital scanner with the computer, the arduous manual task of preparing graphic information for printing could be automated. And thus, digital pre-press was born – and the printing industry was changed forever.
