What is Offset Printing?

Offset printing is a printing technique where ink images are transferred from an aluminum plate to a rubber blanket, and then transferred again to a printing surface. Because the plates have to be created for each color you will be printing, there is a larger set-up fee versus digital printing, but the cost-per-print is much lower because of offset printing's efficiency. We usually recommend that large production runs utilize offset printing for its speed at which it can produce very consistent high quality prints.

Large & Small Format Offset Printing

No job is too large or small for our team of print experts. Our presses can utilize 28"x40" sheets of paper and paired with our finishing and die-cutting capabilities, we can bring every project to life in-house.

Offset Printing Turnaround Times

Due to the creation of the plates and larger production runs, offset printing does take longer than digital. However, getting you your products as soon as possible is a top priority.

We would be happy to walk you through the process so you know what to expect when your project goes to press.
