Offset Printing: The Original Professional Printing Press

By |2020-09-14T04:23:57+00:00September 14th, 2020|

Why is Offset Printing Still Used Hundreds of Years After it Was Invented? When it comes to having the ultimate creativity in colour and texture for your print materials, offset printing is still the best choice for your project. Southport Printing Co. likes to boast about how our team has over 500 years combined experience in the print industry, but offset printing is even older than we are - it’s been around since the 1700’s! While there have been some technological advancements over the past few centuries, the general principles and methodology of offset printing hasn’t changed too much. Unlike digital printers which transfers toner directly to the print surface, offset printers use ink and metal plates to reproduce the design. While there are some great advantages to going digital, offset printing is still just as relevant today as when it was first introduced to the industry and depending on what you’re having printed, can often be the better option. What Makes Offset Printing So Good? Toner only comes in 4 colours - cyan, magenta, yellow and black. This is often known as CMYK. This means that a digital printer can only use those colours to replicate the colours used
