Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


In the late 1970's there was no question that photocomposition was going to replace hot metal. Pasting up pages and then converting them to a suitable product that could be mounted onto saddles on a letterpress machine for printing produced a lot of novel ideas. Among the innovations were plastic plates. There were a number of products on the market. One manufacturers was NAPP, San Diego. I was fortunate enough to be invited to tour the NAPP plant.

A group attending the 1979 ANPA-RI convention in Las Vegas were flown in a DC3 to San Diego. We stopped for a group photo at the airport. Unfortunately not all of the participants have been identified.
