Online printing solutions – are retail print shops a thing of the past?

Online printing solutions – are retail print shops a thing of the past?

In days of old when knights were bold….and printing had just been invented, printed books and the like were expensive and hard to come by. Which wasn’t such a big problem because only a small percentage of the population of the planet Earth could actually read.

This goes a long way to explaining why popular magazines, light weight fiction and interest publications didn’t get launched until centuries later.  What was involved was that someone – who could read – had to manually set the individual letters into order, to enable the printing press to work.

Then we fast forward a few hundred years, to the end of the industrial age. Printing machines had evolved to the point where mass readership could be reached, however the cost of sophisticated high speed presses was still at a level to prohibit mass market entry. In other words, not many could afford those big machines. And more to the point, you could only really own one if you had a market.

What this meant was that the power to spread information was still held in the hands of a select few. Enter the internet.

While its fair to say that, since the advent of the world wide web, the importance of books, magazines and similar have declined, there is still an underlying need for affordable business printing, and it is this market that has remained steady. In volume anyway. The advent of smaller machines has enabled many larger businesses to in house their digital printing needs.

But what about smaller businesses, trades people such as plumbers, electricians, and smaller retail shops. Lacking the steady volume of a large company with hundreds, maybe even thousands, of employees, buying a high quality digital printing machine is out of reach.

That’s why the team at Little Dance have invested in a state of the art digital print solution. Printing in crystal clear high resolution, they have listened to customer demand and today offer a full in house online printing shop for business printing.


Because all overheads have already been met, they are able to compete both on price and quality with some of the largest online printers – if you are looking for business stationery, including custom work, Little Dance is well worth considering.
