In the begining,scripting the magic prints, lingered on stones,clay,bones,silk or bamboo for thousand of years.Next,it stopped over papyrus,parchement and animals skins for a good many years.Then,it remained gleaming on paper,where it reached its peak.Thirty or forty years earlier,it was stored in invisible cells through electronic circuits;it acquired the quality of being seen simultaneously across the world.

What do you mean by "scripting the magic prints"?

Please make sure you put a space after punctuation = commas, full stops, colons, semi-colons, questions marks, exclamations marks.

Thanks for your kind help.This is a text I tried to translate from Turkish and I know it sucked.
I mean 'writing impressive things'

My interpretation!

In the beginning impressive things were written on stone, clay, bones, silk or bamboo. Then came papyrus, parchment and animal skins. Finally came paper, on which the writings gleamed. But forty years ago, words began to be stored in invisible cells on electronic circuits. Now they can be seen across the world by all simultaneously.
