Few Facts about Offset Printing

Offset printing

An inked image is transferred (or "offset") from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface in offset printing. Unlike the lithographic method, which is based on the attraction of water and oil, the offset technique uses a flat (planographic) image carrier on which the image to be printed receives ink from ink rollers while the non-printing area attracts a water-based film (referred to as "fountain solution"), leaving the non-printing areas ink-free.

At the Present, Offset Printing

Offset lithography is a well-known printing technique. Newspapers, periodicals, brochures, stationery, and books are a few examples. When compared to other printing techniques, offset printing is perfect for producing large volumes of high-quality prints at a low cost and with no care. Using computer-to-plate technology rather than the more traditional computer-to-film methods improves the quality of current offset presses.

Benefits of Offset

1. Images of excellent quality.

2. Prints on rough paper, plastic, wood, metal, cloth, and paper.

3. The unit cost falls as the quantity increases.

4. High-volume jobs require both quality and cost efficiency. While modern digital presses may produce high-quality work at a cost-benefit ratio comparable to offset, they cannot yet match the volume produced by an offset press.

5. Many modern offset presses use computer-to-plate systems rather than the more typical computer-to-film operations, which further improves quality.

Visualization of Offset Printing

Since its inception in 2003, Henan Huida Print-All Technology Co., Ltd has produced 40 million square meters per year on four high-speed production lines. Several countries in Europe, ASEAN, South Asia, America, and Africa are among the export destinations. Please contact us at any moment if you have any order requests!
