Project Description

Web-Offset printing utilises the rules of lithography which is based upon the principle that the oil based inks and water do not mix.

This process uses fixed size coated aluminium printing plates which are wrapped around the plate cylinders on the press. The process transfers a positive inked image to a rubber printing blanket which then in-turn transfers the image onto the substrate.

Most Web-Offset presses are heatset meaning that the ink is dried almost immediately when the reels of printed paper pass through a gas oven. This enables the paper to be folded in-line reducing the need for post press finishing and hence shortening turnaround times.

This process is most suitable for medium to long run catalogues, brochures and magazines. Dependent on the format and material used but typically from quantities in excess of 20,000 copies.
