Print Studio is a color printing company located in zone eight, Guatemala City. Print Studio has a triple-A reputation for quality color printing, and I am fortunate that they are printing Guatemala: Eterna Primavera: Eterna Tiranía this spring. When I was in Guatemala in January, José Fahsen, the general manager, took us on a tour of the facilities. It was the first time I had ever seen the inside of a printing house; Print Studio prints everything from cornflake boxes to six-color coffee table books. Their facilities run the technological gamut from high-tech German presses to an over sized book "sewing machine" for book spines. Print Studio even is able to affix scents to its products; Mr. Fahsen had us smell a few pages for perfume and soap ads.
Here is a picture of the scale PS uses to measure paper weight. In this photo they were weighing the paper used in the U.S. edition of my book.
