Web Offset Printing

Web offset printers are suited to fast turnaround of high quality print where large print-runs are required. It is not rare for the large Web offset presses to print several million full colour A4 sheets per hour There are also a wide range of finishing options available – the majority of which will be available on the run (i.e. not as a separate 'or additional' process)

The Web Offset process

Web machines use reels of paper, and stay as a continual line of paper through the machine. The sheet is printed both sides at the same time, and passes through an oven which immediately dries the ink. It is this process that gives web printed images sheen and amongst the other benefits of speed and cost, makes it very desirable for many publishers.

The presses we place most of our work on are "heatset machines" and deliver signature sizes of 4, 8, 16 and 32 page sections, all at high speed, and all at superb quality. This makes for extremely fast turnaround times and ultimate flexibility. All our web presses use the same standard reel size too, so should we experience any breakdowns, rarely if at all would this impact on delivery dates.
