Advantages of Offset Printing compared to other printing methods include:  

 

  • Consistent high image quality. Offset Printing produces sharp and clean images and type more easily than letterpress printing because the rubber blanket conforms to the texture of the printing surface.
  • Quick and easy production of printing plates.
  • Longer printing plate life than on direct Litho Presses because there is no direct contact between the plate and the printing surface. Properly developed plates running in conjunction with optimized inks and fountain solution may exceed run lengths of a million impressions.
  • Cost. Offset Printing is the cheapest method to produce high quality printing in commercial printing quantities.
  • A further advantage of Offset Printing is the possibility to adjust the amount of ink on the fountain roller with screw keys. Most commonly a metal blade controls the amount of ink transferred from the ink trough to the fountain roller. By adjusting the screws, the gap between the blade and the fountain roller is altered, leading to the amount of ink applied to the roller to be increased or decreased in certain areas. Consequently, the density of the color in the respective area of the image is modified. On older machines the screws are adjusted manually, but on modern machines the screw keys are operated electronically by the printer controlling the machine, enabling a much more precise result.

UV printing
UV Printing is different from conventional printing in many ways. It is still ink on paper but the ink dries through a completely different process. Instead of having solvents in the ink that evaporate into the air and absorb into the paper, UV inks dry through a photomechanical process. When the inks are exposed to ultraviolet lights they turn from a liquid, or paste, to a solid. There is significantly less evaporation of solvents and much less absorption of the ink into the stock.

This is advantageous for many reasons. One of the biggest advantages of UV Printing is that there are fewer emissions of volatile organic compounds into the environment since there is no evaporation of the solvents like with conventional inks. Another advantage of UV Printing is that the inks can dry on plastic and other non-porous substrates. Because the inks dry through a photomechanical process it is not necessary for the ink solvent to absorb into the stock. If you can get the stock through the press you can print on it. Printers have even been known to print on substrates as unusual as wooden veneer. In addition to the advantage of printing on unusual substrates like plastic, UV Printing also offers significant advantages when printing on uncoated stocks as well. The solvents in conventional inks absorb very quickly into uncoated stocks. Because of this, less of the solvents evaporate into the air and the printed piece tends to have excessive dot gain and will look muddy or too full.

Since UV inks dry when exposed to UV light, the inks do not have the time to soak into the paper. The ink dot is left sitting on top of the uncoated sheet, where it presents a cleaner less contaminated dot, ultimately giving more vibrant color. The key to printing with UV inks successfully lies in exposing the UV ink to enough ultraviolet energy to cure the ink while not making the substrate too brittle and also achieving an acceptable level of adherence to the substrate. This is extremely difficult because every different substrate has very different characteristics. All-in-all, UV Printing is an excellent way to produce printed material on unusual substrates and on uncoated stock.

digital printing
Short-Runs, Quick Turn-Arounds, etc. If your quantities are small, if you need a quick turnaround, and/or you’ve got a tight budget, we sometimes recommend printing it “Digital”. Digital-Printing is often the best and most cost-effective way to go. The quality is still very good, and there is less setup associated with digital printing, allowing us to produce it quicker and for a lower price.

Digital printing refers to methods of printing from a digital based image directly to a variety of media. It usually refers to professional printing where small run jobs from desktop publishing and other digital sources are printed using large format and/or high-volume laser or inkjet printers. Digital printing has a higher cost per page than more traditional offset printing methods but this price is usually offset by the cost saving in avoiding all the technical steps in between needed to make printing plates. It also allows for on demand printing, short turn around, and even a modification of the image (variable data) with each impression. The savings in labor and ever-increasing capability of digital presses means digital printing is reaching a point where it will match or supersede offset printing technology’s ability to produce larger print runs at a low price.

The main difference between digital printing and traditional methods such as lithography, gravure, or letterpress is that no printing plates are used, resulting in a quicker and less expensive turnaround time. The most popular methods include inkjet or laser printers that deposit pigment or toner onto a wide variety of substrates including paper, photo paper, canvas, glass, metal, marble and other substances.
Consumer and professional printers such as inkjet or laser printers use the most common examples of digital printing. Professional companies now use those practices to go green by using better quality ink and better laser etching to get a crisper picture that is displayed through digital printing.
In many of the processes the ink or toner does not permeate the substrate, as does conventional ink, but forms a thin layer on the surface and may in some systems be additionally adhered to the substrate by using a fuser fluid with heat process (toner) or UV curing process (ink).

SUBSTRATES FOR MOUNTING

We can mount on dozens of vastly different materials, depending on design specs, duration of display, or use intent. We can even seamlessly mount up to 72 inches by 120 feet. Popular materials include:
Sentra. Lightweight, yet rigid and durable, with clean-cut edges. Sentra is versatile, and easily cut or formed into just about any shape imaginable.

Plexiglas

Your image is mounted either directly to plexi or printed onto various grades of photo paper and mounted to plexi to give your work a “glass-like effect.” Options include finishes like clear, frosted, or milk – a wide range of colors and thickness.

Foam core / Gatorboard

Economical and lightweight, both are ideal for displays that will have a short run, yet will still look world-class, especially with top-end lamination.

Other materials include: Kappa, Masonite, Aluminum, Steel, Wood, Acid Free Museum Board, and Vinyl Mesh.
 

LAMINATION

Lamination is the “icing on the cake,” and no one does a sweeter job. We preserve the impact of your imagery with state-of-the-art protectants that can be applied in matte, semi-matte, luster, and glossy finishes.
Laminations on graphics for floor usage can be further enhanced with compounds that create abrasion and slip resistance. For pieces where protection from the sun and ink fade is paramount, our UV printing process can eliminate the need for lamination.
 

TAKE SHAPE. ANY SHAPE.

Your perfectly mounted and laminated images can not only stay in optimal shape throughout their life-cycle, they can take shape in practically any form you desire.
 

WINDOWS

There’s a variety of substrates — often employed in multiple combinations — that our teams employ to create unique windows that draw attention and draw customers in.
 

BUILDING WRAPS

Building wraps can be complex — both the creation of them and the logistics involved. Substrates are more limited because of local ordinances involving liability. And we also have to assess substrates depending on usage, i.e. what will endure the elements and what is life span of the campaign? We guide our clients expertly through all these complexities.
 

CASH WRAPS

We can design, and fabricate brand new structures with custom graphics, or we can adapt to fit existing structures.
 

POP UPS

When a brand wants to sell product in a limited amount of time, or set up a short-run publicity installation, Inkworks puts the pop in the Pop Up concept.

Our vast printing and fabrication capabilities ensure that your vision comes to life, whether on windows, floors, doors, or the walls of the space itself. And getting where it needs to go, by definition a brand-new location, requires coordination, and relationships with major carriers to confirm receipt and installation.
