Offset is mainly used for the production of large print runs. This is due to the peculiarities of production technology, since the equipment is designed for a certain minimum print volume. If you use equipment for printing runs less than this minimum, the amount of supplies will be the same as for the minimum print volume. Therefore, the price of one copy will increase. The minimum print run for offset printing is 500 copies.
In the production of a large circulation of products, offset technology allows you to print an order faster than other types of printing. Full-color brochures, booklets, stickers, invitations, calendars, posters, labels, as well as just large print runs - all this is an offset printing area.
Offset printing today is the most popular type of printing for the manufacture of printing products. Why exactly offset has gained such popularity? First of all, because in terms of price / quality ratio it has no equal today. Compared to other types of printing, offset printing provides excellent clarity and brightness of the manufactured products. Offset printing allows you to expand the printing capabilities of order execution. First of all, it is a high-quality transmission of all colors (CMYK) and halftones (Panton), printing with metallic inks, bronzing with metal powders, etc. The preparatory phase of the offset edition includes several processes (the original layout is mounted on a computer in electronic form, then displayed in the form of photoforms, the next stage is their illumination and adjustment of the equipment to the manufactured form). The cost of preparatory work is transferred to the entire order of circulation, the larger the number of final products, the lower the cost accordingly.
