Why we prefer litho printing: The advantages and benefits of litho printing

August 14, 2013 · Print This Article

Here at Minuteman Press in Pietermaritzburg, we offer both litho and digital printing services. There are, however, a number of things our clients don’t always know about these printing methods.

The litho printing process is based on the principle that water and oil do not mix. It involves a unique printing method using water with oil based products which are placed under pressure between customised plates, resulting in high quality graphics being reproduced every time. When it comes to bulk jobs, there is no other printing solution that offers the efficiency and effectiveness of the litho printing process.

Litho printing is one of the most popular printing options available to date. There are many reasons why people prefer the litho printing process to other printing techniques.

Here are some of the advantages of litho printing:

  • High Speed Repeatability. The speed at which litho printing machines operate is extremely fast. Modern lithography machines can print up to fifty thousand sheets per hour.
  • Full colour, top quality graphics and images. The litho printing process ensures the sharpness of images, which results in clearer and more precise reproductions.
  • You can print on a variety of different papers. One of the major advantages of litho printing is that it is compatible with many different papers.
  • Quality and cost effectiveness for high volume jobs. In terms of needing to produce a high volume of prints within a budget, litho printing is the ideal option. If you need to produce prints in bulk, the price decreases per unit as the quantity increases, thus becoming more cost-effective per print.

Minuteman Press offers both digital and litho printing services in Pietermaritzburg. Please contact us for more information today.
