Mimeograph - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"The stencil duplicator or mimeograph machine (often abbreviated to mimeo) is a low-cost printing press that works by forcing ink through a stencil onto paper. The mimeograph process should not be confused with the spirit duplicator process." - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet
"Mimeographs, along with spirit duplicators and hectographs, were a common technology in printing small quantities, as in office work, classroom materials, and church bulletins. Early fanzines were printed in this technology, because it was widespread and cheap. In the late 1960s, mimeographs, spirit duplicators, and hectographs were gradually displaced by photocopying and offset printing." - Ken Morley
You kids today and your fancy copy machines!! - Ken Morley
I remember my high school had one of those and a ditto machine. The ditto machine was way messier, but easier to operate (mostly due to the mimeo wanting to break down at the drop of a hat.) - Jennifer Dittrich
