Definition of Offset Printingoffset printing is a common printing technique in which the INKED image is transferred from a plate to a rubber blanket and then to the printing surface. When used in combination with the lithographic process, which is based on the repulsion of oil and water, the offset technique employs a flat image carrier. Because offset presses run so efficiently, once they are set up, offset printing is the best choice when larger quantities are needed, and provides PRECISE color reproduction, and crisp, clean PROFESSIONAL printing.

Jazzed About Printing respects the CRAFT of offset printing. When I started in this industry, the digital process was NOT the preferred choice for producing mass media when consistency was paramount. Though digital has come a really long way and is a fantastic alternative for quick-turn, short-run printing needs, offset printing is still the way to go for cost effectiveness and consistent branding, from order to order and long-run jobs, single color to full color. With my years in the industry, I have formulated excellent relationships with industry leaders and know how to get these types of projects produced and in your hands. Your Image is important to us – you can trust Jazzed About Printing to insure branding consistency.

Jazzed Trivia: PMS has a completely different meaning in the printing industry – The Pantone Matching System (PMS) is a popular color matching system used by the printing industry to print spot colors. Most applications that support color printing allow you to specify colors by indicating the Pantone name or number. This assures that you get the right color when the file is printed, even though the color may not look right when displayed on your monitor. Spot colors are used most frequently for one and two color jobs and when an exact color needs to be produced every time. Logos are perfect examples for spot colors. The Pantone PMS color matching system is most frequently used for the selection and printing of spot colors. For example, if a logo needs a distinctive blue to match company colors the customer indicates a Pantone color name or number to their printer. This number will then be matched on the press to deliver the exact result needed
