What is offset printing?
Offset printing refers to a process for transferring ink from one surface to another. It is fast, precise, and creates beautiful images. Developed for printing on paper in 1904, offset printing uses four primary colors, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and BlacK (CMYK), and a technique called half-tone screening to create text and images in black and white and full color.
With over 100 years of innovation to perfect the process, a modern offset press is still the fastest, most accurate, and most inexpensive way to produce superb images, crisp type, and consistent reproduction for medium to long jobs (what printers call runs).
Quantity and quality...
It's like having your cake and eating it too! As mentioned above, modern offset printing has benefited from twelve decades of development and progress, and remains the best way to print large quantities with the best quality. ULitho's presses use innovations like ICC based color management to maintain top quality results at high speeds.
