the printed word/page
the printed page
A physical piece of paper on which something is written or printed. With the rise of smartphones, which require malleable, homogenous formats, crafting a piece of writing to be visually striking or appealing on the printed page has become something of a lost art.
the printed word
Anything that is written on a physical piece of paper; printed media in general, especially books. It's important to foster a love of the printed word in children at an early age. The sudden and ubiquitous rise of e-books and smart devices led many to worry that the printed word may vanish altogether.
