Printing was actually invented by the Chinese, not Johannes Gutenberg
We all know that Gutenberg invented the printing press but he didn’t invent printing. Over 500 years before Gutenberg was able to mass produce books with his revolutionary machine, Chinese monks were using wooden blocks dipped in ink and pressing them on parchment to create text.

The Chinese also invented business cards
Business cards are one of the print industry’s most common products. In the 1400s, the Chinese began using their version of a business card. These cards were not used for commercial purposes so were seen as calling cards, used to announce a meeting with another person.

Only a convict knew how to use Australia’s first printing press
Australia got its first printing press when a small hand press was brought over with the First Fleet in 1788, but no one knew how to use it. Between 1795 and 1880, a convict named George Hughes taught himself how to use the press and was commissioned by New South Wales governor John Hunter to print orders and regulations.

Paper production is actually good for the environment
Over its life cycle, paper provides environmental, social and economic benefits while protecting and maintaining public health, welfare and the environment. This means that paper is one of only a few truly sustainable products in the world.

Print is an effective advertising medium
A study by TRU, a division of TNS Research Global, entitled “Millennial Paper Usage and Attitudes” found that compared to digital, print advertising was seen as official, trustworthy and secure.

The first major book printed in the West using movable type was the Gutenberg Bible, also known as the 42-line Bible, the Mazarin Bible, or the B42. Forty-eight copies of the original edition survive to this day.

Gutenberg's financier was a man named Johann Fust, whose name becomes Faustus when translated into Latin. The technology of the printing press was so new and astounding that Fust was accused of witchcraft, not least because the type of the Gutenberg Bible was printed in red ink, which some mistook for human blood.

Modern factory-produced type was introduced in the 19th century. The letters for this type were stored in a drawer called a "job case". The capital letters were stored in a drawer above the other letters, which gave rise to the phrases "upper case" and "lower case".

A printing press is a device for applying pressure to an inked surface resting upon a print medium (such as paper or cloth), thereby transferring the ink.

It marked a dramatic improvement on earlier printing methods in which the cloth, paper or other medium was brushed or rubbed repeatedly to achieve the transfer of ink, and accelerated the process

In the late 18th century the poet and artist William Blake invented "relief etching", where he painted text and pictures in an acid-resistant solution onto copper plates which he then submerged in acid, leaving only the words and pictures in relief. Blake published his own poetry in such a manner, calling the works "illuminated books".

Johannes Gutenberg, a goldsmith by profession, developed, circa 1439, a printing system by adapting existing technologies to printing purposes, as well as making inventions of his own. Printing in East Asia had been prevalent since the Tang dynasty,

Printing press technology remained largely unchanged until the 19th century when Friedrich Koenig started using steam to power the presses and replaced the flatbed printing surface with rotating cylinders. These two changes made printing much quicker and more affordable.

Gutenberg's most important innovation was the development of hand-molded metal printing matrices, thus producing a movable type-based printing press system.

Inkjet printing technology was first formulated in the 19th century, but wasn't used or produced extensively until the 1950s. The first continuous inkjet printing system, the syphon recorder, was developed by Lord Kelvin in 1867. Thermal inkjet printers were introduced by Canon engineer Ichiro Endo in August 1957.

His newly devised hand mould made possible the precise and rapid creation of metal movable type in large quantities. Movable type had been hitherto unknown in Europe. In Europe, the two inventions, the hand mould and the printing press, together drastically reduced the cost of printing books and other documents, particularly in short print runs.

The latest innovation in printing, 3D or Additive printing, was developed in the 1980s but didn't begin to truly flourish until the 2010s. The first working 3D printer was created by Chuck Hull of 3D Systems in 1984.

The printing press is a machine for printing. It makes many copies of identical pages. The printing press today is used to print books and newspapers.

In the 16th century, with presses spreading further afield, their output rose tenfold to an estimated 150 to 200 million copies
