The earliest recorded recipe is found in Miss Leslie’s Ladies Receipt Book, published in 1847. The first strawberry shortcakes were made with heavy pastry that was similar to pie crust but thicker.
Despite the fact that chocolate has been around since 1100 B.C. and strawberries had been found growing wild in Italy as early as 234 B.C., it was not until a woman by the name of Lorraine Lorusso combined the two in the 1960’s in her little shop called the Stop N’ Shop in Chicago that Chocolate Covered Strawberries were born.

This video from the National Museum of Industrial History in Bethlehem, PA explains how Otto Mergenthaler and his invention “The Linotype Machine” revolutionized the printing and publishing industries in the early part of last century.
PrintWorks was originally founded in 1924 as Bonekemper Typesetting in Lansdale, PA as an independent typesetting firm. The Bonekemper team ran three shifts typesetting newspapers, books and other documents for print companies in the northeast, and was the largest type house outside of a major city in North America at the time.
We had two of these machines until 2001 when our last hot type client, a greeting card company, ceased operations. We typeset thousands of lines of these hot metal slugs each year during the Christmas season until the technology was replaced by digital printing in the early 2000’s.
We’ve seen a lot of change through the years, and we have come a LONG way! We embrace change and understand that we must continually adapt to the ever changing needs of the marketplace.
Equipment and technology comes and goes but there is one thing that never waivers: our commitment to you, our customer. A simple commitment reflected in our mission statement:
We deliver creative Print & Marketing Solutions that make our clients successful. We keep our promises, provide creative solutions, and achieve our client’s goals.
