What are the limits of print? Printing has been aiding mankind throughout the ages. It is a process for reproducing text and images using a master form or template. Among the earliest examples involved cylinder seals invented around 3500 B.C. The earliest known form of woodblock printing came from China dating to before 220 A.D. Today, print has seen abundant growth within the technological age. Companies are utilizing new uses and processes every year, and print has never been better.

Consider what West Chicago Printing can do for your business. West Chicago Printing has been providing quality printed products to companies across town and across the country since 1911.
