Offset

The most common form of commercial printing, offset is a printing process in which a printing plate is made; then it is mounted onto a cylinder, rolled in a mixture of ink and water, and then offset onto a blanket, which in turn rolls over paper.

This method of printing is by far the most common and the option you will choose repeatedly to address the majority of your printing requirements. Build references or resources of stock samples as well as ink catalogues, and include chip books or fans, which will assist you with your production choices. It is also helpful to have a good understanding of bindery and finishing options. The following is an overview of the offset method.
