If you’re looking for printers for rent or for sale, you have certainly arrived at the right place. We supply offices and homes with reliable Xerox printers that produce quality over and above that of competitors.
Of course, Xerox is the leader in modern printing technology and we are a proud partner, enabling businesses to take out a printers lease, or purchase the finest printers in the world. But did you know that Xerox was the innovator for the first modern copiers? The story of print is a surprisingly interesting one. We found a thought-provoking infographic on the history of print which leaves us with the question – where would we be without print today?
It has certainly come a long way since its inception in the second century, when the ancient Chinese people used a kind of block printing to imprint images onto materials like silk. Nowadays, it’s easy to print whatever we want, whether we possess our own home or office printer, or we use printers for rent. But printing is a part of our lives that we truly do take for granted, because a few centuries ago, knowledge, information and education through print were only for the wealthy. This all changed when Gutenberg developed the printing press. No one could argue with the fact that this is one of the most important inventions in human history. Without the revolutionary printing press, you would probably not be able to read this, as we would not have the Internet. This new way for people to spread knowledge helped to edify those who were too poor to ever have the opportunity to gain an education. And of course, education leads to new inventions.
