The Long Part

Offset Printing

What does OFFSET mean? According to the dictionary – “a method of printing in which ink is transferred from a plate or stone to a uniform rubber surface and from that to the paper.” To us it’s much more...

Ok, we admit it. We’re print geeks. We love the machinery, the technology, the jargon, the roar of the presses – every aspect of the job, right down to the dot structure on every page we print.

Our presses use H-UV ink. What does the H represent? Hybrid. You get the benefits of fast curing ink but also no VOC’s and less energy consumption because our press uses fewer UV lamps than a traditional UV press. In addition to energy consumption, the H-UV cuts down on waste (think way less make-ready) and there is less down time (think moving from pressroom to bindery in a matter of minutes).
