Offset printing was developed in the late 18th century and revolutionized the printing process. Before offset printing, artwork could only be reproduced through a long and strenuous alternative process, and offset printing allowed for a precise and efficient way to reproduce beautiful designs. Commercial offset printing is still a wonderful way to add style to your company or organization’s promotional material.
What Is Commercial Offset Printing?
Offset printing involves applying an image to the material (generally paper). The process involves creating the desired image, transferring the image to a rubber blanket and finally applying the blanket with the image to the paper. Commercial offset printing, in particular, refers to offset printing that occurs in large quantities or on an ongoing basis, generally for businesses or organizations.
How Commercial Offset Printing Works
Offset printing is recommended to create all kinds of materials. Although there are numerous possibilities, at Professional Graphics Inc., we can create the following with our offset printing technology:
- Sell sheets
- Pocket folders
- Full-service bindery
Commercial offset printing takes place in three steps. The first step is to create the printing plate. This can be done with different materials, ranging from paper to aluminum. Each of the four colors used has its own plate (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black). With these four colors, we can make any other color we need. The second step is to feed the finished material through the printing press. The third and final step is bindery, during which we create the books, brochures, pamphlets or whichever type of material you are interested in making.
The Benefits Of Commercial Offset Printing
Offset printing allows us to print large quantities quickly. This works well when creating books or fulfilling a large order of brochures and other promotional materials. Offset printing also allows you to customize your order as you desire. We can use different types of material based on your design goals and preferences and have a range of color possibilities.
Commercial offset printing is also cost-effective. The more you print with us the less expensive the price per piece becomes.
