Out of town-ing: Michigan

Giant rolls of paper to be made into books!
Last week I went on my first business trip to visit one of our book printers! I'll admit it, I'm a big nerd. We got tours of the printing presses, the folders, the gathering machines, the binders, the stampers... it was really cool. I took so many pictures and asked my fair share of questions. It was fascinating to see how much work goes into the actual printing of a book--work done both by machine and by people.

The color mixing room.

Books go by on the belt after having the covers applied.

It was so cool. Yep, I'm a nerd.

How fun! I'm geeking out too! Our yearbook staff is going to our printing press in the Fall too :)
