National Paste Up Day

Every May 7th, National Paste-Up Day commemorates a nearly extinct method of page layout for publications. In the era predating computerized imaging and desktop publishing, magazines and various publications relied on manual paste-up techniques to arrange articles for final production.

This intricate process mandated the expertise of a skilled paste-up artist to ensure proper alignment of copy, photos, and other page elements. Today, with the advent of digital processing, virtually anyone can swiftly and effortlessly perform the same tasks, requiring only a minimal learning curve.
