Offset Printing

The perfect

Offset Printing

Offset printing is a trade perfected over a lifetime. Some people say it’s in their blood. The best press operators don’t just hit print and walk away, relying on technology alone. They spend hundreds of hours learning their craft and mastering their particular press. They understand how ink will react with paper and how the press can be manipulated to achieve the perfect reproduction. They know their press inside and out, and they understand the capabilities of offset printing better than anyone.

That’s exactly why offset printing is the primary method used to print high volume items like magazines, catalogs, postcards, brochures, direct mail and marketing collateral. It’s also a great way for you to get your publication printed in a cost-effective manner while maintaining high quality and reliability. The ability to produce large volumes without sacrificing quality or consistency appeals to many offset printers, who continually improve their presses in hopes of continually improving their craft.

The offset printing process has been used for generations, and many experts consider it to be the most established form of printing technology available today. It’s no wonder why offset is still a popular choice for those who are serious about producing quality print material at high volume.

For over 50 years we have been perfecting our craft, always striving for that impeccable reproduction. We would love the opportunity to show you what we can do. Give us a call to discuss your next project.

Here are a few key features and benefits to think about when selecting offset printing:

  • Richer more consistent colors
  • More color choices
  • Sharper image quality
  • More paper options
  • Specialty coatings and varnishes
  • More consistent reproductions over larger runs
  • Lower per-unit cost with large quantities

What Is Offset Printing?

Offset printing has been used for generations; this is even considered to be the most established form of printing technology we have today. The process involves using a computer to create images on a metal plate to print the images onto a material. These metal plates transfer ink onto rubber blankets or rollers to roll the ink onto the page.

Offset printing is an excellent way to cost-effectively print a publication without sacrificing quality and reliability. Because of the ability to produce large volumes without compromising quality and consistency, offset printing is very appealing compared to digital printing services.

Here at RoyerComm, our offset printing service offers vital benefits that can significantly impact your project.


Benefits Of Offset Printing

Many businesses prefer to print using offset printing because of its many advantages and outstanding output qualities. Here at RoyerComm, these benefits are magnified by our commitment to striving for impeccable reproduction. Take a look at the key features of offset printing:

Richer And More Consistent Colors

Since offset printing lets the printer operator control the ink flow, you can expect high-quality printed images with vibrant colors every time. This meticulousness also ensures that fewer prints are wasted. In addition, offset printing uses specially mixed inks, allowing for better color accuracy.

More Color Choices

Offset printing uses four different colored inks; there are cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. Each colored ink is applied separately until they combine to achieve a full-color spectrum. Because of this, offset printing can easily accommodate a wide range of colors through custom mixing inks for each job. This method also makes it possible to achieve more distinctive Pantone colors.

Sharper Image Quality

Offset printing uses a flexible rubber printing gear system that can be applied evenly on the printing surface, producing sharper images. This technique also prevents image blurring by printing ink on the platen press before being transmitted through the surface of the printing material.

More Paper Options

Offset printing allows for various paper selection with different weights and finishes, but the availability of options depend on a printing company’s suppliers, presses, and capabilities. At RoyerComm, our offset printing service can accommodate a wide variety of paper options because our operators can calibrate the press depending on the thickness and coating of the paper. You can choose between uncoated and coated (gloss or matte) or select from different weight categories such as text, cover, index, bond, Bristol, etc.

Specialty Coatings and Varnishes

Coatings and varnishes are applied to a printed piece during or after printing. This protects the piece from scuffs and scratches and enhances the look. The options for coating and varnishes include the following:

  • Aqueous Coating
  • UV Coating
  • Strike-Through Varnish
  • Reticulating Varnish
  • Soft-Touch Coating
  • UV Grit Coating

More Consistent Reproductions Over Larger Runs

Offset printing is more capable of consistently producing large volumes of print than other printing methods because there is no contact between the plate and the surface. Hence, the plates tend to last longer. This process also allows special inks to achieve printing run lengths of more than a million impressions.

Lower Per-Unit Costs

Another significant advantage of offset printing is its cost efficiency. This technique is cheaper than rotogravure or photogravure methods; it reproduces images at 15,000 press sheets per hour. Therefore, the more you need to print, the cheaper it costs to produce each piece.


Applications of Offset Printing at RoyerComm

Offset printing is widely used in industries requiring high-quality printing results. It prints large volumes of magazines, books, newspapers, brochures, and more. Aside from paper, offset printing is also used for printing on leather, cloth, vinyl, plastic, wood, and metal. Because of this versatility, many businesses can benefit from offset printing.
