    I went through a Printing Technologies at our local junior college to get a degree in desktop publishing. it was 20 years ago and they were slowly getting rid of their light tables, stat cameras and darkroom. A couple of years earlier, they were teaching courses in stripping. Back then, highly trained printers were able make negs to burn printer plates. I'm sure that skill in plate making is a lost art. Some print shops go direct to plate without even using image setter negs to burn the plate.

    I have seen some course work art one of the art colleges around Denver that do that sort ofprint making with negs and burning plates. That looks like a lot of fun. Something I probably would find very difficult to do in my garage and the Mrs. wondering why she can't park her car in the garage because there is a printing press in her spot. Would be an interesting sell...

    Old offset litho is probably dead. The strange thing is that letter press is coming back in some circles. Martha Stewart is a fan.

    ...Though the future wife rolled her eyes big time when I brought it home. She just doesn't understand these things.
    I got a similar deal on a large light table, my wife helped me haul it home though.
