What is Offset Printing?

Offset Printing is the process of using metal plates, usually zinc and aluminum, to transfer an image onto a rubber blanket, which at last transfers this ink to substrate.  The method of using a rubber blanket was discovered and developed into what offset printing is today instead of transferring the image from a plate directly to the paper. Offset printing plates function based off the principle that grease and water do not mix. The plate is treated with an image that binds with the ink and the un-treated portion of the plate rejects the ink by holding onto the water.

Offset printing is just one of our many printing services here at Disc Pro Graphics
