Print Media is Not as Dead as You May Think it Is…
Although it may not be as mainstream as it has been in the past, print media is not as dead as you may think it is. It has been a few decades now that the world has moved into the digital era. With anything and everything seemingly navigating to this digital space, the room for print media has definitely diminished to the seemingly bare minimum.
However, this does not indicate a slow death but rather a niche calling that still has its place in everyday life and beyond. Yes, it is true that media consumption has moved to your mobile phone for the most part, but if you dare to look around a little, you will notice that printing is still very much alive and is an intricate part of your daily life. Whether you realize it or not.
Just Look Around
Physical books, posters, leaflets, paperbacks, magazines, calendars, comic books, and cards for every occasion are all still alive and well in this digital age. This is undeniable. And although our digital devices have taken center stage, without these hard-copy materials, we would be living in a very different and surprisingly unfamiliar place.
Just take a look around, wherever you are at the moment, and you will notice, whether you’re at home, in a restaurant, or on the train, that there is some form of printed media or material in your sphere of existence. Be it a book, a notepad, a calendar, a diary, or even a leaflet left lying on the floor. I have no doubt that you see one or more of these items.
That being said, the art of printing books has not been lost. And although they are the second choice for media consumption these days, they maintain their integrity and stature. Once words and images have been immortalized in print, they cannot be changed, thus maintaining their message for their entirety.
The New Age of Printing
With the advent of the technologies that we have at our disposal today, printing media has become a whole lot easier and way more effective and simple than previously.
Online order forms and spec sheets, image reshaping and resizing, and the editing process by large have changed the game when it comes to rectifying and reworking materials. But the feel of the real thing is one thing that is not going to change. No battery issues, cracked screen problems, and certainly no threat of theft. Who steals a book? No one! That is who.
Hand-in-Hand with Technology
Printing a book, or anything else for that matter, has become so much easier in this day and age, and your ideas can be immortalized in no time at all. Simple online ordering systems and processes, cost-effective prices, amazing quality text and image printing, and (paramount to a successful business in the online age) exceptional customer service is what you can expect when getting this type of work done for you.
Yes, digital is great, and yes, it is convenient, but there is simply no suitable replacement for the real and tangible feeling a book brings to the table, not to mention all the references that come with not being able to put a good book down.
