Welcome to South African Virtual Printing Museum

A unique, interactive platform dedicated to showcase imPRESSed Collection of binding and printing tools and apparatus. The collection aims to preserve artifacts from onset of printing in South Africa until end of the ‘hot metal’/letterpress era. With the industry shift towards the digital solutions, some of the equipment are sole surviving /working examples locally.

Please note: although the collection is housed in brick and mortar building, it is in residential area without permissions from either the Residents Association or the City of Johannesburg to operate as a museum. It is not open to public, except through this portal. Thank you for understanding and enjoy the virtual experience.
