The printing trade has seen many vast and radical technological transformations, particularly with the dawn and evolution of the current digital era.
The Dimboola Printing Museum preserves a vast wealth of functioning relics from earlier eras of print technology, including letterpresses well over a century old in perfect working order. The museum collection also includes a vast amount of loose wood and metal type from the long-gone era of hand-set typography.
