Unlike digital printing, which uses an electronically charged powder called toner as the method of printing, offset printing uses actual ink. While digitally printed image appears shiny, offset printing makes the image appear more flat. Actual inks like Pantone or CMYK process is used in offset printing to print the desired image. At Minuteman Press we do offset printing in house and can offer our customers with a choice of both. This helps us stay competitive in pricing on all types and volumes of your business printing such as letterhead printing, envelope printing, sticker printing, flyer printing, business card printing, carbonless, and much more. Not to mention, it has extremely high accuracy to match to your brand’s colours.
It’s that easy
The offset printing technology enables us to do specific Pantone color printing for all types of business stationery. This helps us provide you with your branded stationery in bright, vibrant colors that help identify your business. Offset printing is also the method used to do raised business cards, printing in gold, silver and other metallic colors. It is also the process through which business cards are printed. After the business cards are printed using the offset printing presses, these uncut cards are later sent for foiling or die cutting or embossing.
Offset printing technology has transformed over the years and is also used for large volume runs, larger size runs and often with finishing units attached to these presses such as aqueous coating or varnishing. This method of finishing adds a gloss or matte finish to the printed product. You can create emphasis on a part of an image by doing a spot aqueous or varnish, where one part of image will appear shinny in contrast to the rest of the image or paper for that matter.
