Offset Printing

Whether a simple one colour or a complex six colour piece, and with paper stocks ranging from lightweight uncoated paper to heavyweight gloss card, your print job requires the correct handling. As leaders in the printing industry, our objective is to produce high quality, commercial sheet fed printing that enhances and promotes your image.

Offset printing is the smart option when you're printing larger volumes and you need to ensure accurate colour reproduction. Offset printing uses metal plates (it’s called ‘offset’ because ink isn’t applied straight to paper) so unlike digital print there are some additional set-up costs that will need to be considered. Offset printing also allows a wider range of papers and specialty inks so you are only really limited by your imagination.

Why choose offset print?

  • Offset printing is more cost effective for large quantities (the more you print, the cheaper per unit)
  • Offset printing brings the highest possible print quality and accuracy (sharp detail and colour)
  • Offset printing offers a wide variety of paper types and finishes available
