While many bookworms now consider paper books obsolete with their Kindles, the profession of a Printing Press Operator is quite far from being obsolete.  There is still the need for school textbooks, broadsheets, magazines, movie posters and advertising collaterals as well as books for people who don’t like Kindles or prefer the real books.  The Printing Press Operator now uses desktop publishing systems to process final art copies for a direct feeding into computer-controlled printing presses.
