Offset printing, also known as, offset lithography, is a method of mass-production printing in which inked images on metal plates are initially transferred, (offset, ) to rubber blankets or rollers and then to the printing surface. In offset printing, the paper does not come into direct contact with the metal plates. The rollers are the, shall we say, “middle men,” The lithographic process is based on the repulsion of oil and water. The image to be printed gets ink from ink rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a film of water, keeping the non-printing areas ink-free. .
Offset printing is primarily used when materials are to be distributed publicly. Some of these materials include departmental letterheads and envelopes, invitations, brochures, business cards, and note cards/envelopes. Our offset press can handle a variety of both paper and ink colors, so your options are vast and varied.
