PrintingFilms.com is a collection of vintage films that showcase the technologies and processes of printing, journalism, and typography. It was established by Doug Wilson in 2012 after his work as director of Linotype: The Film.
The collection started when Doug was given a box of 16mm Linotype promotional films by Dave Seat for digitization. In 2013, Carl Schlesinger (a former Linotype operator at The New York Times) donated his extensive collection of films to The Museum of Printing which assisted in the preservation of these films in 2015.
Along with donations from other archives and collections, this website will grow with content to preserve these films for future generations and curious people alike.
