  There’s only one way to find ! We’re often asked why we choose some jobs to print digital and others offset litho. Up to five years ago, the choice was easy if quality wasn’t an issue and cost was, then print digital, otherwise always print litho. Nowadays, with the advancement of digital presses, the choice is not quite as clear cut.   Litho printing is a technique where the inked image is transferred from a metal plate to a rubber blanket, Typically, printing plates are attached to a cylinder in the press. Ink is applied to the plate’s image area and transferred directly to the paper. Digital can be differentiated from litho or offset printing in many ways.

Packaging Design Corporation Shore Drive Burr Ridge, IL Phone: () Fax: () Email: [email protected] Two of the most popular printing processes are flexographic and offset printing.

Here are some helpful ways to distinguish which printing process will be used for your next order. Flexographic printing. Flexographic printing, or flexography, is a type of printing process that uses a flexible relief plate.

This type of printing is mostly used. Offset lithographic printing works best on flat media and in large runs. Most major book and magazine publishers use this method. Lithography also works well to produce high-quality maps and packaging where special effects or regionalization aren't priorities.

Flexography provides easier changeovers for short print runs and slight variations in. Digital printing shines when lower quantities are needed; think of a run of 20 greeting cards or flyers.

Another benefit of digital printing is it's variable data capability. When each piece needs a unique code, name or address, digital is the only way to go. Offset printing cannot accommodate this need. Flexographic printing, or flexo, is a relief printing technique similar to letterpress that employs rubber or soft plastic plates, a simple inking system and fast drying inks.

Flexo printing allows the inked surface to conform to many kinds of substrates, such as butcher paper, natural kraft, newsprint, chip and linerboard and coated boards.

An advantage of Offset litho is the ability to use spot (PANTONE) colours in the same way a process colour (CMYK) would be used. Spot colours are standardised, which ensures consistency. For example, a Red U printed in China, will look identical to a Red U printed in England (providing they are printed on a similar paper).Author: Lucy Batley.

This saves time and effort versus offset printing which is a separate process from the actual manufacture of the envelopes. There is a qualitative difference between flexo and offset. Generally speaking, for jobs that contain screens, half-tones or fine lines, offset printing is required in order to acheive the best results.

Long time since I dealt with this, but isn't litho printing done from metal plates, by an offset process. It goes from the plate cylinder to the blanket cylinder and onto the printed material. It's used for cartons and labels, books, magazines.

Flexographic printing is a. As you increase SID from too low to too high the contrast relationship between a 75% tone and a % patch of a color changes.

When SIDs are too low there is not much difference between the 75% and % patches - they lack contrast. As density increases, the difference between the two patches increases or, put another way, the contrast increases. Offset printing became the most dominant form of commercial printing in the ’s.

This was in part due to industry improvements in paper, inks, and plates. These improvements allowed for greater speed and plate durability.

The majority of modern day printing is still done using the offset printing process. What is offset litho anyway. As indie authors, we bandy about the term “print-on-demand” and “POD“, as that is generally the printing method used when we produce our paperbacks through suppliers such as CreateSpace and r, it’s easy to forget – or not to realise in the first place – that other methods are also available.

The printing plates used in flexography must be custom made using a laser-guided design process. This is time consuming and can be very costly, with a single plate costing anywhere between $75 and $ on average.

The long runup time to production can also limit the effectiveness of. Offset printing is the greatest lithographic technology.

It is an indirect lithographic technique, a situation where the ink is first transferred from the printing plate into a adaptable intermediate carrier – the blanket – and after that onto the substrate. – Book/Offset 25” x 38” Wide range of sheets available in coated and uncoated.

In gravure printing, the image is engraved onto a copper cylinder because, like offset and flexography, it uses a rotary printing press. The difference between digital printing and litho printing Litho printing is a much longer process than digital printing.

The litho printing process works by first having the print image burned onto a plate and it is then transferred (sometimes called offset) from the plate to a. Offset printing is a commonly used printing technique in which the inked image is transferred (or "offset") from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface.

When used in combination with the lithographic process, which is based on the repulsion of oil and water, the offset technique employs a flat (planographic) image rollers transfer ink to the image areas of the.

The introduction of the new Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 75 Anicolor is really quite exciting. In an age of digital custom printing, Heidelberg has made dramatic strides in–of all things–sheetfed offset lithography. A friend and associate brought this development to my attention, so I did some research into Heidelberg’s new press, and I already see some game-changing implications.

But if you really need a clear distinction, litho is the art/creative form that is very simple and popular.With traditional offset litho printing, the printed image is first burned onto a plate, then transferred (or offset) from the plate to a rubber blanket, before finally being printed onto the paper.
