Offset Printing


HIGH QUANTITY, HIGH QUALITY

A SHARP, CLEAN, AND PRECISE PRINT THAT COSTS LESS.

 

 

Offset printing produces sharp high-res images and is cost-effective for high volumes.

 

Offset printing can be used on paper, wood, cloth, metal, leather and plastic. Our offset presses use computer-to-plate systems for a faster turnaround and use actual pantone inks giving you the best match with pantone colours.

 

From printing surface and paper type, to size and special finishes, Spectrum’s offset printing caters for all tastes and designs.


Pre-press production

 

Your digital file is converted to plates, with a different plate used for each of the primary colours – black, cyan, magenta and yellow. This is why offset printing is also known as four-colour printing, although there are many colours in the final output.

 

These plates are scanned and the data is saved on a microcassette which becomes the master – this is used to determine the quantity of ink to be released during printing.

Colour and Registration control

 

Colour registration is a computer-aided process whereby the Register Control System automatically aligns the printing plates according to their registration marks as they apply their respective colours during printing.

 

This guarantees the right colours and sharper images. Colour control determines how well the ink blends together to achieve the desired appearance in the final printed piece.
