Offset printing is the most traditional method of printing. Using metal plates imaged from your artwork file our presses print on large sheets of stock which we then trim down to final size.
The most common items that get printed in this manner are: Brochures, Catalogs, Price Lists, Pocket Folders, Price Lists, Magazines, Fliers, Business Cards, Letterhead, Envelopes, etc. Offset printing is generally most economical when printing 500-1/2 million pieces, or so. Usually with quantities larger than 1/2 million the job would move up to a press that prints on large rolls of paper (web press), as opposed to printing sheet-fed on sheets of paper.
Although the set-up costs are relatively high, the actual printing process is inexpensive which makes this a cost effective solution when printing in large volume.
Once your job is printed there are a number of finishing techniques that can be applied: overall UV coating, spot UV coating (to draw attention to a particular area), die-cutting (to create a unique shape), foiling, embossing or debossing.
At Clear Print we have four sheet-fed offset presses, each with their own specialties that we use to produce a variety of jobs. We’re one of the only companies that can print in full color on ready-made, off-the-shelf envelopes.
