Hi David,

And so too is Graphic Repro – having launched in SA in 1985 – the year everything started to move from Electronic Publishing

Best regards,
Mike Hilton

This is shared with Mike’s permission. He added that one can learn more about the history of Graphic Repro magazine, graphic design, and printing on the Graphic Repro site.

Personally, I will add that his weekly email newsletter is a must-read. I like the jam-packed format filled with the latest news from not only the South African print, prepress and publishing market, but really from the world. The “Technology-related articles” near the bottom is nice to keep an eye on as well!

Which other companies are sharing a 25 year anniversary with desktop publishing? Comment below and get social with your DTP contacts in the Markzware User Group on LinkedIn. Also, remember to use FlightCheck to preflight your DTP files for print quality of document output.
