Offset Printing

Offset Printing, also called offset lithography, or litho-offset, in commercial printing, is a widely used printing technique in which the inked image on a printing plate is printed on a rubber cylinder and then transferred (i.e., offset) to paper or other material.

Our six-color offset press and 10-color perfecting press use RPI’s color management workflow which enables us to print at a much higher line screen than conventional printing and produces rich, clear, high resolution images and graphics.

We have the ability to print up to 10 colors on our Perfector offset press which allows more consistency with brand standards.

The rubber cylinder gives greater flexibility, which allows printing on thicker substrates such as 40 mil styrene.

 Advantages of Offset Printing:

  • Large quantities can be printed cost effectively
  • Price tends to decrease as volume increases
  • A large variety of substrates and unique custom finishes are available
  • Custom metallic and Pantone inks are available
  • Offset produces the highest printing quality, with exceptional detail and color fidelity
  • Color Management
