Lithographic Label Printing

(Offset Litho)


Litho Printing Process

Lithographic 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 label. Litho printing plates are created using a polymer coating applied to a flexible aluminium plate.

Lithographic Label Printing produces top quality printed labels with the highest resolution graphic.
