With much of the focus on imaging nowadays being pinpointed solely on sharing online, much of the attention toward developing a fine, finished print has gone by the wayside. This is not to say, however, that printing is a thing of the past.

Through the late 1980s and 1990s, while hip-hop and grunge music took over the airwaves, another revolution affected nearly every listener, manifested in the way they consumed their favorite songs.
