Lithographic printing is sometimes known as offset printing and is the most cost-effective choice for high volume printing such as letterheads, publications, brochures, posters, packaging and any item which features a large amount of text or which needs to be mass produced. Set-up costs are higher but low run-on costs means the ‘per unit’ price drops dramatically.
Despite advances in digital technology, nothing can match litho printing for colour accuracy and print clarity. From one colour printing, to two-colour, three-colour, four-colour and even spot-colours, UV-spots and metallic inks, our litho department offers exceptional quality and value for money.
