Something our present printing businesses should be thinking about
So says this this 76 year old
Will printed media and newspapers dry up in the next decade as a result of the internet content of world news etc. I am old and I can hold the I-pad in my hands. I myself have worked in and around printing most of my adult life, and I really don’t care for the the smell of ink on paper or a News Paper. Printed media will always have a place in society, although less and less people are relying using the means of news on printed paper.
The cost alone is driving printed news on paper out of the equation.
Many magazines and books have gone by the wayside, Look, life, are a few of the great magazines of no more.
Print media will not completely disappear in the next 10 years.
The demise of the printed press has started, while only magazines and evolving rapidly.
Government printed legal tender, will also be a thing of the past! Seems hard to believe?
Some form of print on paper will never be completely obsolete, it will have a place but, ever so small.
In the short span of ten years in the future the story will be more fully realized lets say by 2024.
