【明報專訊】Mr Wong is a strait-laced, wiry man with ink-stained hands who has worked side-by-side with his wife for more than 60 years. They opened their printing shop, which is nestled in the side of a hill in Sheung Wan, 44 years ago. He learned the craft as a young man and eventually saved enough money to buy a second-hand machine. In those days, a state-of-the-art Heidelberg printing press cost the same as a small Hong Kong apartment. In his heyday, Mr Wong produced business cards and letter paper for Reuters and other big firms, but now things are very different. Most of his orders need to be passed on to digital printers and delivered back to clients faster. But when something special does come along, he still fires up1 his beloved Heidelberg and does it by hand. Mr Wong says when he is forced to retire, he will donate the machine and his thousands of miniature Chinese characters to a museum.
