Advantages of offset printing:

  • Consistent high image quality.
  • Cheapest method for producing high quality prints in large quantities

Disadvantages of offset printing:

  • Time and cost associated with making a press ready to print, very small quantity jobs are better suited for digital printing.

Why is White Ink used for Backlit Signage?

Spot Colors vs Process Colors

Do you print using any Spot or Pantone colors for large format printing?

We only print large format products in 4 color process (CMYK). If you specify Spot or Pantone colors they will be converted to the closest possible process equivalent. Our flatbed UV printer has the capability to print white ink adding many more exciting options to your print job.
