Respected supplier of digital print vinyl, roll label paper, signage material and heat transfer vinyl to print industry. Offset printing, also called offset lithography, is a method of mass-production printing in which the images on metal plates are transferred (offset) to rubber blankets or rollers and then to the print media. The print media, usually paper, does not come into direct contact with the metal plates. This prolongs the life of the plates.

Lithographs can be printed on a wider variety of paper than etchings. Slightly textured rag paper can enhance the lithographic grainy look of the print. Successful prints can be made on wet or dry paper. If a print looks too faint on dry paper, but the plate has been inked up correctly, often the use of moistened paper can rectify the problem. From what i can remember.. ..Litho plate is a thin sheet of anodised fine grain hardened aluminium used in the printing industry. The photographically prepared (etched picture on to the aluminium) printing plate is treated chemically so the image will accept ink.
