The History of the Printing Press

Johannes Gutenberg revolutionized printing with his invention of mechanical movable type. It wasn’t that long ago that jobs were being printed using this very method… and it’s still a technique used for specialty jobs and covers. At TPH and Caxton, we have moved with the times but the Caxton story started back in the days when setting text the way Johannes developed, was common. It hasn’t been until the last 20 years that technology has changed the face of printing, allowing virtually anyone to set up a publishing house. Today Caxton is one of NZ’s leading printers with a reputation for excellence in print and service, and TPH Print has revolutionised this service by providing small to medium sized businesses with high quality, cost effective print via a proven online system.
