Known as the indirect printing technique, offset printing is inspired by the lithography or “stone writing” system of ancient times, with some differences. In this technique, the principle of repellency of greasy inks on water is used, so that, applied correctly, it is possible to define which areas of the support acquire ink by moistening those that should not acquire it.
As the final ink transmission goes from a rubber cylinder to the final support, being this cylinder flexible, ink can completely print rough surfaces, which allows to produce runs with very high detail and reproduce exact images on paper and cardboard.
Offset printing projects require a significant preparation phase, since putting the machines into operation is an expensive process. First of all, the pre-press crew establishes the criteria to be followed to produce the files in such a way that all the printing standards that such production requires are met.
This type of printing is the perfect alternative for long-run productions that require daily deliveries such as the press or other information media. It is also a very recurrent method for printing internal stationery materials of companies which look for displaying a high-detailed brand recognition.
