Offset Printing


Offset printing is a commonly used technique where an inked image is transferred (or 'offset') from a plate to a rubber blanket, and then onto the printing surface.

Known for its high image quality, offset printing is typically used for large-volume commercial printing.

This method produces clean, sharp images and typefaces, and it's compatible with a wide variety of surfaces.
