Since the 1980s, publishers of books with lots of color lithography have used first European and then Japanese and Chinese printers because they did good work and were cheap. American printers did good work, too, but their employees didn't work for five cents an hour.
the tide is turning. Just as companies like Buck Knives are bringing
manufacture back home due to increasing overseas labor costs and
skyrocketing transportation expense, so are book publishers (whose
products can be heavy) giving the work back to American printers. This
is the case with Crosley and Crosley Motors, I am happy to say. 100
percent made in America!
