The Printing Process
These pages will aim to cover the various methods of printing that would have been used in Edinburgh firms since printing came to Scotland in 1508. They will cover the various incarnations of technology that were used by Edinburgh printers to assist them in their endeavours. For the purposes of this site we have divided the processes into pre-industrial printing and post-industrial printing. However, many of the processes discussed will have been used for 100s of years, both pre and post industrialisation.
