Offset Lithography

Offset Lithography

We offer state-of-the-art B2 sheet-fed litho printing to get the kind of breathtaking results our clients have come to expect.

Litho printing works by applying printing ink to a pre-prepared metal plate containing an image which is then transferred to paper stock by print machines which create the desired impression.

Litho is a high quality printing process which is used for high volume print runs, it is extremely flexible and can be run with a wide range of stock types and weights; customised inks are also available such as metallic and UV.

We are proud of our 40 years of printing experience and skills that we can offer you and your business.
