    The Majority of Australian Consumers Value Paper & Disagree with Digital-Only Communications

    The perpetual question of print vs environmental sustainability generates a lot of discussion.On the whole, the easy perception is printing is a bit like an environmental Godzilla that cuts swathes through forests with reckless abandon. But this is not the case. As an industry that faces more negative press than most, its done a lot to put sustainable practices in place.

    A lot of studies have been conducted over the last couple of years looking at the differences between how we process information read via a screen, compared to reading off the printed page.There is a common perception that millennials live their lives predominantly through digital platforms.

    16th Century Book

    It’s hard to imagine what sort of evidence, we as humans living now, will leave for others to find in a few century’s time. The concept of looking at a schoolboy’s marginalia in an amazingly preserved 16th century book is fantastic. The fact it survived such a lengthy journey through time is testament to some amazing craftsmanship (some mean binding!) and probably the reverence that we still collectively place on books as intrinsically important objects of beauty, knowledge and insight.It also shows students haven’t changed either!
