Offset Printing is great for: business cards, letterhead, catalogs, books/booklets, business forms, flyers, brochures, calendars, invitations and so much more. Offset printing offers the best price per piece in the printing industry. The process produces prints with rich, smooth solids without the streaking found in lesser quality prints. Actual inks are used, not toner. The look and feel of any offset product comes across as more professional.

All offset printed products must be individually quoted.

How It Works

Offset printing is a commonly used printing technique where an inked image is transferred (or “offset”) from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to paper. The offset process is a lithographic process. Lithoghraphy is a process based on the repulsion of oil and water. An image that is offset printed is separated into its fundamental colors. (This example is assuming a 4 color job, ie. a brochure with text and images. There are times when there is only one or two colors or even six or eight.) The brochure would be broken down into the primary printing colors; cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK). Thanks to computers this process has become easier. The image is broken down into these four colors and four seperate plates are made. These plates are then put on to a press. The press pulls in the ink and puts it onto the plate. The press applies great pressure to the plate and the ink imprints the image onto a rubber blanket. The image is then pressed onto the paper. When these four colors are printed onto each other the image is complete. This happens really fast and many impressions can be made from one set of plates. It is a very efficient process and is best for high volume printing where the finished product must look at professional as possible.
