Labels in offset printing are particularly suitable when fine grid gradients and images on the labels are required. However, the quality of the print result depends heavily on the print shop that carries out the print job. If you need high-quality labels in offset printing, then we are the right partner for you.
We have a modern machine park, which is equipped for both smaller and larger runs. Various finishes such as hot stamping are possible with our labels in offset printing. Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality labels.
Wet offset vs. dry offset
We have two different offset printing processes – wet offset and dry offset. In both cases, it is indirect flat printing.
In the wet offset printing process, the flat printing plate is wetted with damp water, which has water-friendly and water-repellent areas. The inking unit transfers the ink to the moistened printing plate. Only the areas of the pressure plate that have not absorbed water due to their repellent property are wetted with paint. The ink is first transferred to a blanket cylinder before it passes from there onto the substrate. Direct contact with the substrate would disturb the ink-water balance. The advantage of this technique is a fine color control as well as the use of various special colours.
As a second method, we use dry offset. Here, the printing plate is provided with a solid layer of silicones at the non-printing points. This saves the entire dampening unit on the machine. Similar to flexographic printing, the inking unit is equipped with an anilox roller. This enables an extremely uniform ink application over the entire production width. Thanks to this process, repeat jobs can be reprinted very quickly and in a material-saving manner.
Offset labels from Froben Druck
Offset printing is particularly suitable for labels that have high demands on colour quality and fineness of the screen gradients. Compared to other printing processes such as digital printing or flexographic printing, the result is often even higher quality. We are proud to be able to offer our customers this quality.
If you choose our labels in offset printing, we can offer you a wide range of options. For example, we can refine your labels with hot stamping or use spot colours. We are also flexible when using different materials such as foils or paper.
We attach great importance to the highest quality of our offset labels. If you are interested in our labels, we will be happy to send you samples produced in offset printing. We are sure that you will be impressed by the quality of our labels.
