What is Offset Printing?

Also called “offset lithography” or “litho-offset”, the techniques of offset printing are over a hundred and twenty years old. First discovered by accident in 1904 by American printer Ira W. Rubel, the process of transferring an inked image from a printing plate onto a rubber cylinder, and then transferring that on to a paper material is most popularly understood by images of busy newspaper printing presses.

Today, the process of offset printing involves the use of pre-imaged aluminum plates and a fine-tuned balance of water and ink, which is manually controlled by a skilled tradesman.

Offset printing allows for a variety of paper types and custom finishes, inks and colours. It allows for a superior degree of control over colour fidelity and accuracy in detail.

  • NCR Forms
