Offset printing - types and types
Offset printing is the most popular type of printing in today's printing industry. It is true that it has many varieties and uses different techniques and materials (paint, paper). The main division is cold printing, where the paint is fixed by soaking into paper. While the 'hot' offset where the printed paper web passes through the drying tunnel.
The classic offset (water) is associated with the use of water rollers and hydrophilic and hydrophobic surfaces, however, this method is already abandoned due to the difficulty in obtaining a good balance of water and oil paint.
The successor of this method is anhydrous offset printing where silicone molds are used instead of water.
Online printers are gaining more and more supporters, not surprisingly when more and more commerce is done online. This is a very convenient solution, because you can immediately overcome mistakes made by potential customers when placing an order.
Often, they send a bad file in the wrong format, with the web printing this error is still captured by the script itself accepting the order. Of course, such printers also have their drawbacks, ie the lack of the possibility of an individualized approach to the client and his needs, unless we get a really good printing house.
Internet printing is the latest trend on the market and it is not surprising that users - more modern - are eager to use such printers. The advantages of this solution are certainly clear and predetermined conditions of printing, checking the files by the script and the speed of implementation.
Like every innovation, it also has its drawbacks - we can not check the printout but it is sent to us, which limits the possibilities of complaint. Sometimes software errors occur. However, the worst drawback is the lack of individuality in such online orders, and this is something that is valued by not one regular customer.
