What Is Offset Printing?

Offset printing is not an uncommon printing service in Singapore. In fact, it has been around for more than a century and for decades, this printing service has been approached by many businesses for commercial purposes: brochures, flyers, posters, etc. The procedure of offset printing goes as follows: Ink is transferred from a plate to a rubber sheet, which is then used to roll into paper, vinyl or other surfaces. This method approach of offset printing allows for mass production of flyers, brochures, etc. – as compared to digital printing.

Although both digital and offset printing have always been likened to be very similar; one must know that, the difference that set these two printing services apart would be: digital printing does not use plates to transfer ink to paper. As a result, digital printing is known for being quicker to print than offset printing. However, digital printing could not support larger format printing and mass production of prints. This is due to the specific units’ requirement in digital printing.

However, with offset printing service, businesses especially those who are on a tight budget will benefit a lot from this particular printing service. Using offset printing service, businesses can expect mass production of printing to be supported – looking into a print quantity of over 500-1000 pieces; larger format of printing is possible: a 40” press can accommodate a flat page size approx. 25”x38”; lastly, offset printing supports printing in PMS colours and utilize gloss/dull varnishes for added texture. Additionally, multiple presses “heads” allow for an infinite array of colours and printing techniques, and all of these cannot be achieved via digital printing.
