Litho

The process of litho printing offers the capability to use all types of stock

Lithographic print is the most common high volume commercial printing technology. It offers the flexibility to use all types of stock, allowing you to print on light paper (60gsm uncoated/90gsm silk) up to boards (700 microns) of varying textures and is most suited to print runs of a few hundred copies upwards.

The process of litho printing retains the integrity of the stock as the ink is absorbed allowing the look and feel of the paper to be inherent to the final product, giving it a more considered appearance. litho5 The main advantages of litho printing are the image quality, cost effectiveness (as the unit cost goes down as the quantity goes up) and options of stock.

There are many contributing factors to consider when choosing how to print and finish a job, including the size, stock, finish and turnaround time of your job.
