For Long Print Runs, Offset Printing Offers the Most Cost Effective Option for High Quality Printing
Offset printing presses have a long history of producing high quality and high volume printing. They have the largest sheet sizes (up to 60″) which allows for printing of over sized documents or imposing multiple jobs or images on one sheet. And offset printing has the added ability to allow for 5th and 6th color PMS ink (in addition the CMYK) to be added when a very specific shade of color is required. Most offset presses also have the ability to add an aqueous coating to give a polished look to the finished sheet. The downside to offset printing is that the metal plates required for the press can be very costly and time consuming to mount on the press. This upfront cost makes offset printing uneconomical for short press runs. Conversely on very large print runs offset printing becomes the most economical since the plate costs are amortized over a high volume of press sheets.
