Our Printing Process
As top-rated digital, offset and packaging company in Nigeria, we use the 6 major printing processes as distinguished by the general method of image transfer. Here, the image (artwork ) is transferred from the image carrier (print machine) to the substrate (print material e.g paper) either Directly or Indirectly.
In direct printing (DI), the image is transferred directly from the image carrier to the substrate, examples of direct printing processes we use are: Gravure, Flexography, Screen printing and Letterpress printing processes. Digital printing is a much newer process that involves your job being processed by a computer and then printed directly onto the surface of your product. It is best used for items that require high amounts of detail (modern finish), and for orders of a smaller quantity.
In indirect or offset printing, the image is first transferred from the image carrier to the blanket cylinder (plate) and then to the substrate. Thus, Lithography printing which is currently the dominant indirect printing technology used is a good example of indirect (offset) process. Therefore, Offset printing, also called offset lithography, is a method of mass-production printing in which the images on metal plates are transferred (offset) to rubber blankets or rollers and then to the print media. As a leading Bulk Photocopying Services in Lagos, Offset printing is more economical option compared to digital printing. This type of printing method can provide a higher quality and large quantity printing projects at cheaper rates.
Our Printing Stages:
Irrespective of the printing process we used: Digital Printing or Offset Printing, each printing process is divided into three production stages: (1.) Pre-press Stage, (2.) Press Stage, and (3.) Post-press Stage.
- Pre-press: This stage includes operations such as composition and typesetting, graphic arts, photography, image assembly, and image carrier preparation. Prepress operations also includes steps during which the idea for a printed image is converted into an image carrier such as a plate, cylinder, or screen.
- Press State: This refers to the actual printing operations; which we do professionally with customers’ requests in mind. It includes the application of words, designs, or pictures on a substrate using all the printing machine units.
- Postpress: This is the final stage between printing and shipping. It primarily involves the assembly of the final printed materials; which consists of binding, cutting, silting, folding, laminating, packaging and other finishing operations.
