Block printing was the original method of printing. Called xylography
it worked by pressing individual sheets of paper onto a carved wooden
block. China is thought to be the birthplace of block printing, and we
have extant copies of Buddhist scripture (the Diamond Sutra) dating back
to 868 A.D. This technique was also used to print Bibles in Europe.
There was a great deal of labor required to carve large amounts of tiny
text onto the wooden blocks. This fact, combined with the high
illiteracy rate of the time led to the “Pauper’s Bible” which consisted
primarily of illustrations with small amounts of text. The method of
printing required that a new block be carved for each page printed. As
this was very time consuming it limited the number of different books
that could be printed.

Categorizing your sale displays
Each category of a store has a certain look to it. Whether it's a
bookstore, a clothing boutique or a hardware store, retail outlets of a
specific type have a certain feel to them. Look around at the many types
of pop displays that other
stores use. Even if all you find from your search are ideas that you do
not wish to use, you will still have saved time, and perhaps money, by
avoiding those ideas from the beginning.

Choosing a shredder for your work load
It only takes a few minutes to buy the
paper shredder that
meets your needs. For home use, wastebasket size may be perfect, but for
an office of 100 or more people, this size would not handle the volume.
Likewise, an industrial-sized paper shredder that shreds several hundred
pounds of paper a day would be too much for home use.
If you work in an office that handles personal information or
information that could do harm to another person or business you need a
cross cut paper shredder. It is possible to reassemble shredded
documents. When the paper is fed into the shredder, and the shreds are
not mixed, the paper strips stay in about the same place next to one
another. And if the documents are fed into the shredder with the lines
of text parallel and not perpendicular to the shredder blades, then long
legible stripes of the document will still be there. Be safe, use a
cross cut shredder.
