Offset Printing Introductions for Book Printing Projects
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/10/2011  Keywords: Offset Printing Introductions,Book Printing Projects

Most book printing jobs are printed by offset lithography (abbreviated to offset or litho). Offset metal plates have a flat surface which is treated so that the areas to be printed attract grease (ink) and repel water; and the non-printing areas attract water and repel ink. A plate is clamped around a cylinder on the press, dampened and inked by rollers,offset printing.

The plate rotates against a rubber coated cylinder (or blanket) on to which the inked image is offset and from which the ink is transferred to the paper. Many offset presses are sheet-fed and vary in plate size and in capabilities. There are also offset presses that print on to a reel of paper. Sheet-fed presses would be the usual choice for standard printings of black-and white books. Web presses produce a folded signature at the end of the operation. This makes them attractive for long print runs.

Offset book printing is a widely used book printing technique where the inked image is transferred from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface. When used in combination with the lithographic process, which is based on the repulsion of oil and water, the offset technique employs a flat image carrier on which the image to be printed obtains ink from ink rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a film of water, keeping the non-printing areas ink-free.

Currently, most books and newspapers are printed using the technique of offset lithography.
