These articles are worthy of being made available to the public – for free – and that’s where we come in. You’re busy, so we publish useful, practical, interesting information in an easily digestible format and size.

A spirit duplicator (also referred to as a Ditto machine in North America, Banda machine in the UK or Roneo in France and Australia) was a printing method invented in 1923 by Wilhelm Ritzerfeld and commonly used for much of the rest of the 20th century.
