Offset Printing


Offset printing provides a higher and more consistent quality of printing with sharper, cleaner images and type. This option uses a combination of ink and water; the image area, the water to the non-image area. The inked image is then transferred (or "offset") from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface. The disadvantage of Offset printing is that the printing job cannot vary once it is sent to press. The advantage is high speed, high volume printing, at less cost.

Offset printing is used primarily for larger quantities on printing jobs with more of a flexible timeline. This is generally a less expensive printing option because the larger the quantity, the cheaper the price.
