After 96 Years, a Press Closes in Brooklyn

Before Xeroxing and digital images, if a business needed a menu, a poster or a coupon booklet mass produced, they'd take it to a local printer. It would be set in type and pressed to paper - the artwork saved for the next printing. Henington Press in Park Slope, Brooklyn, was just that kind of place. It's a family business that started in 1912, and it's going to close this winter. Before the presses stop, WNYC's Kathleen Horan dropped by for a visit.
