Five Reasons Why Print Isn’t Dead

May 30, 2017 · Print This Article

With the advent of digital methods of transferring data, we have experienced an explosion of information. It is no wonder, then, that we seem to be permanently attached to one device or another – from smartphones to laptops! But does that mean that print is dead? Quite the contrary: in a digital world, print stands out.

  1. Touchy-feely

We, humans, are tactile creatures. What is nicer than a back rub or the smooth texture of silk? The same holds true for our reading pleasure. Being able to touch and feel physical paper as we read something makes the whole experience more tangible.

  1. The Healthy Option 

Not only do we like to hold paper in our hands when we read, but our eyes thank us too. The backlight of a digital screen means that prolonged reading online leads to eye strain and blurred vision. Additional health hazards of lengthy screen time – sitting in one place for hours – can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, insomnia and back problems.

  1. Easy 

Have you ever had to edit or proofread copy on your computer? How many errors slipped through the cracks? My guess is that for the best result, you still must print out important documents to read them in hard-copy format.

  1. Retention

Hard copies are easier to read and navigate, which leads to them also being easier to study from. According to recent studies, reading on paper creates a better recall.

  1. Credibility

Forbes claims, “The saturation of digital pop-ups and banner ads on the web can be overwhelming and the fear of spam and viruses is enough to make people wary of clicking.”
