The advent of online publishing had been said will push publishing and printing business into oblivion, but close to a decade later. Publishing, printing and print machine manufacturers are still in business, with more investors like Gazelle Limited one of the exhibitors at the ongoing Propack East Africa packaging, printing and plastics exhibitions at the KICC insisting that the printing business is not going anywhere and it’s here to stay. The last few years have seen a growth in Kenya’s printing industry because of the demand for school books fuelled by the free primary education that was started in 2002. The book printing business has seen a growth in the number of printers who handle book runs and other academic material. But even as many insist that fate of these printers could be hanging in the balance due to the cost of borrowing. Players in the industry have come up with strategies to stay in business and avoid going to borrow.
