Offset Printing

Offset lithography is the most common high volume commercial printing technology. In offset printing, the desired print image is burned onto a plate and is then transferred (or offset) from the plate to a rubber blanket, and then to the printing surface.

Advantages of Offset Printing

High image quality.
Works on a wide range of printing surfaces.
The unit cost goes down as the quantity goes up.
Quality and cost-effectiveness in high volume jobs.

Many modern offset presses use computer-to-plate systems as opposed to the older computer-to-film work flows, further increasing quality.
Offset printing has a front-end cost load. Short runs may have a high unit cost. But as quantities increase, the unit cost goes down with offset printing.
Do you need or want a special paper, finish or unusual printing surface, or unique size? The options are increasing continually for digital, but offset printing still offers the most flexibility.
If you need only black ink or one or two ink colors, offset printing may offer a more cost-effective solution.
