Offset Printing

Offset printing is a widely used printing technique that involves transferring the inked image from a plate to a rubber blanket and then onto the printing surface. It is the ideal choice for printing complex designs, small fonts, and photorealistic images, especially when combined with the lithographic process. Offset printing is preferred for printing large quantities of collateral and publications. However, it is not a direct printing method for corrugated boxes, unlike flexography. To use offset printing for corrugated boxes, a single layer of paper is printed first and then mounted onto the corrugated board. This method offers more material options, including substrates with a glossy finish, which can be used to achieve a glossy finish on corrugated board. Alternatively, you could print directly on Kemi. However, printing litho on corrugated requires several additional steps, which is why it can be more expensive than flexography.

Why use it

  • High quallity printouts
  • Accurately pantone colors matched
  • Multiple substrate options with a variety of finishes available.

Why not use it

  • Only flexible materials, like paper and paperboard can use
  • Cost-effective for large quantity runs

Offset Print is a printing technique commonly used to print on flexible paper such as folding cartons and paper boxes. Although it can be used for corrugated boxes, it is not a direct print method like flexography. When printing on corrugated boxes using offset, first a single paper is printed, and then it is mounted onto corrugated board. This method offers greater flexibility in terms of material options available for printing on corrugated boxes.
