Offset printing

Need to print large quantities of books? Then offset printing is the perfect choice. This traditional printing technique is ideal for large print runs, as the cost per copy drops significantly as the print run increases. Choose the high quality of book offset printing at Tipoprint!

The significance of offset printing

Offset printing is a traditional printing technique, in which ink is transferred from a printing plate to the paper via a rubber cloth. This indirect method is ideal for printing 300 books or more.

Preparing the machine takes some time, but once up and running, the printing process is fast and efficient. Although the start-up costs are quite high, the cost per book gets significantly lower as you get more copies printed. Offset printing is thus especially advantageous for larger print runs.

What is the difference between offset and digital printing?

When choosing a printing technique, you are likely to come across the terms ‘digital printing’ and ‘offset printing’. We are happy to explain the differences so you can make a good choice between these techniques.

Offset printing is the traditional method of book printing. In this process, the ink is transferred to the paper via a rubber blanket. The great thing is that the more books you print, the lower the cost per copy becomes. With a print run of 300 or more, you will see the price per book drop significantly – ideal for large runs.

Digital printing is a more modern technique, using advanced printers that print directly from a digital file. Similar to how your printer works at home, but much more powerful. A big advantage is that you do not need printing plates, which saves costs for smaller runs. For large runs digital printingfinancially less interesting, as the cost per book remains cash, whether you have 50 or 1,000 copies printed.
