Substrates and Finishes ...
The ability to print on a host of ... thicknesses, finishes and substrates ... is what keeps offset printing as the predominant print process.
Did you know sheetfed offset presses can print on substrates as thin as .0012” (1.2 point) to those as thick as .063” (63 point), on sheets as large as 52” x 72” at maximum speeds of 15,000 sheets per hour?
Printing substrates vary from paper to plastics. Print surfaces may be as smooth as glass or as porous as cotton. Because of the resiliency of a rubber blanket, uneven surfaces (felt, linen, and leatherette finishes) are imaged at the same rate of speed as their coated cousins.
High-quality lithographic printing for your customer communications
The term “offset” is derived from “offsetting” the image from plate to a rubber blanket and then to paper. The result is something special.
