Back to the Future: Gutenberg Would Have Been Honored

Self-proclaimed “printing nerds”, the Tempo Flexible Packaging team, based in Ontario, Canada, couldn’t resist having fun mixing history, playfulness, and their love for the art of printing during the commissioning of their first German press, a NOVOFLEX II from W&H.

What better way to tie it all together during machine commissioning than to return to the origins of the printing press and run a Gutenberg Bible page as the test job?

“Gutenberg changed the world with the invention of the mechanical printing press, and we found this a fun way to pay him homage,” said company Optimist & CEO, Len Giglio.
