What is Offset printing?
Printing technique that transfers the inked image(offsets) to rubber blanket from a plate, then later to a printing surface. Combined with lithographic process based on water and oil repulsion, this technique attracts a film that is water based to keep the non-printing area ink free. Offset lithography was initially created to cut down expenses when reproducing artwork.Image © silvano audisi/Shutterstock
