What is Offset Printing?
Offset printing is a commonly used printing technique in which the inked image is transferred (or “offset”) from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface. When used in combination with the lithographic process, which is based on the repulsion of oil and water, the offset technique employs a flat (planographic) image carrier on which the image to be printed obtains ink from ink rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a water-based film (called “fountain solution”), keeping the non-printing areas ink-free. The modern “web” process feeds a large reel of paper through a large press machine in several parts, typically for several metres, which then prints continuously as the paper is fed through.
When to use Offset Printing
One of the most common ways of producing printed materials is offset litho printing.
This method is best suited to produce large quantities of high quality printed materials at commercial costs Offset printing is the best method of ensuring colour accuracy and consistency.
