De Angelis Typography is located in the center of Rome for over 60 years. It is born from the passion and dream of a little guy named Giorgio who, at the age of 20, from a shopboy, became a businessman. He rent a small place in Borgo Pio, next to San Pietro and there, toghether with his beloved wife and partner of a life Iole, who will follow this path for life, began to print. From a simple dream, the typography soon became a reality. Over the years, the passion for paper and ink has never been lost and perhaps this is why the de Angelis family did not want to embrace new technologies remaining bounded to the past with the right prospect for the future.
Offset printing was invented in 1875 by Robert Barclay for printing on pond and subsequently adapted to paper printing by Ira Washington Rubel in 1904. Offset printing, also called offset lithography, is a method of mass-production printing in which the images on metal plates are transferred (offset) to rubber blankets or rollers and then to the print media. The print media, usually paper, does not come into direct contact with the metal plates. This prolongs the life of the plates. In addition, the flexible rubber conforms readily to the print media surface, allowing the process to be used effectively on rough-surfaced media such as canvas, cloth or wood.
