The father of printing, Johannes Gutenberg, who invented the printing press, once said, “Yes, it is a press, certainly, but a press from which shall flow in inexhaustible streams, the most abundant and most marvellous liquor that has ever flowed to relieve the thirst of men! Through it, God will spread His Word. A spring of truth shall flow from it: like a new star it shall scatter the darkness of ignorance, and cause a light heretofore unknown to shine amongst men.”
Time and time again master printers have created “magic” through their print works.
PrintWeek India Awards is an initiative to honour such great print artists.
Every year the print synergy comes together at the PrintWeek India Awards to celebrate print and honour the unsung heroes of the Indian print fraternity.
