Offset lithography

The name given to the printing method used by companies that produce high volumes of magazines, catalogues and newspaper. Each of the cyan, yellow, magenta and black inks are applied to the paper individually. Ink is first applied to a printing plate cylinder which is then transferred to a cylinder covered with rubber and finally to the paper. Ink will only hold on areas that have a percentage of that colour in the final image.
