Has anyone ever had to ‘pack’ a guillotine?

This is a question one of our apprentice has.

I think it’s for book work, which I’ve never done.

Thank you.

You need to be versatile in the current print market. Covering the digital dept because of annual leave.


Name the part? Just a new feature to see how this goes. If you know, you know.


We have our first question. Thanks to Jason for it.

I would like to pose a question to the group.

I and my wife own/operate an all-digital print shop. We are going into our tenth year of costly equipment leases and service contracts. While we are successful and profitable, I've been around long enough to know... We can do better. I have limited experience with hands-on work. AB Dick 350/360s in the early 80s convinced me to stay in the darkroom or wreck my back hunched over a 40"+ light table.
Anyway! For what I'm shelling out in a digital lease, I'm sure I can buy a fairly decent 2/c press. What nobody talks about is PLATES. My gut tells me that this is a big hidden expense that is largely ignored until it's too late.
What is everyone using for plates?
I've got a camera and darkroom ready for dust-off if necessary.


I’ve set this page up to enable small offset printers to connect, discuss and help each other. I hope this can become an education for us all.
