Lithograph printing is described as an "offset" printing technique because contrary to screen printing the Ink is not applied directly from the printing plate. In this print method ink is applied to the printing plate and then transferred (offset) to the substrate. Litho printing plates are created using a polymer coating applied to a flexible aluminium plate.
