How Did Colonial Printers Profit from Slavery?

I am working on a book about the relationship between Benjamin Franklin and his business partner and friend, James Parker. As some of you may know, Parker established the first permanent print shop in New Jersey at his native Woodbridge around 1752. Among the areas I am exploring are how both men had owned slaves. Parker was in New York City in 1741, for example, and may have been around for at least parts of the so-called slave conspiracy. Later, Parker would pay off a debt to Franklin by sending him a slave named George.
