Students of the department of Mass Communication, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU) undergoing Industrial Training (IT) at Orient Daily Newspaper were taken on a visit the publication’s printing press. One of them was excited by what she saw and dropped this note about the visit.
A Visit to Orient daily printing press is something to talk about. The printing press was an impressive large storey building with various stages and kinds of printing jobs happening simultaneously.
The printing press not only printed newspapers but also other materials. There was the Web city express machine, Kord machine and the C-D machine etc. It was a surprise to see how fast the machines were printing millions of works in just an hour.
The important thing about the printing press was that it was dedicated to printing, binding and cutting; what came out of the place was the final material, completely packed and ready to be delivered to the publishers, clients and marketers.
The trip to the printing press provided far too much technical information for us. This is an experience every student on IT should have. Visiting the backshop provides knowledge that backs the theoretical aspect of the teachings in class.
