“Where does print come from?” is the question asked at the beginning of the film and it attempts to show the process of printing from tress to final product. Using a few of the Kimberly-Clark Corporation “Graphic Communications Through the Ages” series of oil paintings, the film shows the history and technological improvements of printing.
A simple explanation of offset-lithography is given along with views of large, web presses, bindery techniques, and paper making. Created by the Printing Industries Association of Texas, the film ends with a pitch for people to join the printing industry and get jobs that will eventually become high-paying and skilled.
