OFFSET PRINTING (UP TO 3 COLORS)
Offset Printing is a type of process that is used to put ink on paper. In most instances, it is the ability to generate one, two, three and sometimes four colors of ink on up to a Tabloid (11x17) size sheet of paper. Another term used in place of Offset Printing is called Sheet Fed Printing. Although these are the same process of printing, some Sheet Fed Presses are capable of handling paper sizes up to 40 inches wide. Even though they use single sheets of paper, these larger presses, sometimes referred to as Perfecters, are capable of running large jobs at a fraction of the cost.
