Went down to the printers for the press check of our SG50 book this morning. The books are being printed by Markono, a local printing company that has been around since 2 years after Singapore’s independence. They are based at a part of Singapore I rarely visit since army days – 21 Neythal Road at Pioneer, Jurong.
It was quite an interesting and enlightening experience to see how books (and journals) are printed, and to get an idea of the different types of printing available nowadays (digital vs. inkjet vs. conventional). I am glad Markono staff were kind enough to provide a short tour of their facility.
