Printing Methods & Capabilities:
Litho 6 colours max
Lithographic (litho) printing is based on the principle that water and oil do not mix, it is a superior printing method compared to the Flexographic printing process. Our printers have 4, 6 or 8 colour printing presses and some are able to print up to 300dpi.A metal plate is treated so that the image area attracts oil-based inks and the wet non image areas repel the oil-based inks. We use a particular type of litho printing called ‘offset’printing. This refers to the ink being transferred onto the paper using a rubber cylinder (blanket) first before finally transferring onto the paper.This ensures that the plate does not come into direct contact with the paper preserving the quality of the plate. These printers are sheet-fed; hence we cannot use these printing presses on anything other than paper and card which can then converted into various types of packaging.
