Benefits of Web Offset Printing

Posted on Commercial Printing December 21, 2018 by Taylor Jacoby

So, what exactly is web offset printing? The process of Web offset printing involves continuously feeding a roll of paper through a printing press. This is different from sheet-fed printing which uses individual pieces of paper that are precut and then fed into the press. Once the pages have been printed onto the roll of paper, it’s either folded by signature or separated and cut to size.  When it comes to images, this type of printing job requires that you print the image you wish to reproduce onto a plate, which is then pressed onto a rubber blanker that is rolled onto the material, and ultimately creates the image on the paper. This is where the term offset comes from.

Web offset printing is best suitable for high-volume publications such as mass-market books, magazines, newspapers, catalogs, and brochures.

What are the benefits of web offset printing?

Ideal for Large Scale Printing

One of the main benefits of offset printing is the large volume of printing you can do with consistent results.  If you are looking to have something large scale printed, offset printing accommodates larger proportions than sheetfed printing can without compromising quality.

Consistent Quality

When your printing service utilizes the latest technology and Advanced Interface systems in-house, you can expect high-quality results every time with quick turnaround.   With high-tech web presses, such as the 6-unit Komori 38 S, unparalleled quality is produced with a full array of options such as:

  • In-line folding and sheeting options
  • Auto plate
  • Close loop color
  • In-line aqueous and gluing
  • And More

Speedy Results

Do you need your printing job completed rather quickly?  Another benefit of choosing web offset printing is the time and efficiency.  Web presses use rolls of paper rather than sheets of paper.  This allows for greater speed and efficiency during the printing process.

Pantone Color Matching

If your project requires the use of the Pantone Machine System, offset printing can provide you with the most accurate match.  Another bonus of web offset printing is that if you only need to print in black and white, the cost will be significantly lower and save you money.

Cost Effective

A major benefit of using offset printing for your project is that it is very cost effective.  If you need to produce a high quantity of quality prints, this is a smart choice.

Web offset printing overall is a quick and cost-effective printing option with consistent high-quality results.  If you have a large order that needs to be printed and want to get the most for your money, web offset printing is the answer for you!  Are you interested in learning more?  If you’re looking for quality printing services, there are options for you.  Solo Printing has a variety of printing services available and a great track record of providing quality printing.
