Offset Printing

Meridian is Rockford’s choice for printing and can help you with your offset print needs. Offset printing inherited its name from the processes it uses. The ink used is not directly transferred to the sheet paper. It is offset onto another cylinder before being applied to paper. The process uses etched metal plates that apply ink onto a sheet of paper. Therefore, offset presses run very efficiently once they are set up. This type of printing is the best choice when larger quantities are needed, and provides accurate color reproduction, and crisp, clean professional looking printing

What are the Advantages of Offset Printing?

  • Large quantities can be printed cost effectively
  • The more you print, the cheaper the price per piece
  • A large variety of paper types with custom finishes can be used
  • Special custom inks such as metallic and Pantone colors are available
  • Highest possible printing quality, with greater detail and color fidelity

When to Choose Something Else

  • Due to the setup, maintenance, and generally higher order quantities, turnaround time for offset printing can be slightly longer than with Digital Printing.
