LITHOGRAPHIC

Litho is a method of printing in which inks are transferred onto plates to make an impression. 

  • All printed colour images are made up of 4 colours: Cyan (blue), Magenta (red), Yellow and the Key colour, Black (CMYK). Your PDF artwork is imposed on a computer and all the colours on the artwork are separated into CMYK and the plates are produced for each colour.
    .
  • The plates are collected by the printer and inserted into the press.  Each plate is coated with its corresponding colour. The coloured image is rolled or ‘offset’ onto a blanket, which makes an impression on paper being fed through the press.  As the paper moves through each set of rollers, the colours mix to create a full colour image on the page.
    .
  • The pages are then sent to our print finishing department to be guillotined and for any extra finishing requirements such as collating, binding, folding or laminating.

DIGITAL

Digital printers, both inkjet or laser, deposit ink or toner onto the paper and offer fully variable print - every page can be unique and personalised. 

  • Unlike Litho, printing digitally does not require the use of plates and so it offers an faster turnaround, usually used on mailing items such as postcards and one-piece mailers or for small volume static print such as business cards or menus.
    .
  • Digital Presses use CMYK process colours.  Unlike Litho, they are applied at the same time by the machine.
    .
  • Digital presses have the ability to collate, staple and bind too, saving huge amounts of time and effort and delivering a quick turnaround for your finished product..
