Printing up a Storm

So this is where my husband has been spending 12-18 hours a day the past few weeks. Not exactly in the warehouse, but driving in traffic, meeting customers and getting jobs onto press.
Although I'd been up to the plant before, I always find it fascinating to watch these machines spitting out paper, hundreds of sheets at a time.
It comes off either of the printing presses and then gets stacked, so it can go into the assembly machine that makes all the booklets.
He was nervous about the status of his jobs last weekend, so we headed up to the plant on Sunday night to see how they were progressing.
He was very happy to see so much of the work boxed and wrapped up, ready to be shipped out.

These are the new presses. Yes, they are really glorified copy machines, but considering they can cost up to half a million dollars each, they do a large chunk of his business every month.

It's pretty neat to see these glorified Xerox machines compete with the big presses, and how they are creating digital printing with online ordering for their customers. It's all really great, except when H has to stay late at night and feed the *copier* more paper!
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: We had a pretty good (restful, work-free) weekend, and this is a short week (even if H is having late night).
