From the printing plate, the color is transferred to the blanket cylinder, an intermediary, which in turn emits the color on the printed material to the substrate. Due to the use of the interface, which evolved from the technical problems when printing on cans, offset printing is one of the indirect printing process. Direct process the color without intermediate steps is transmitted from the printing plate to the substrate. To print colour illustrations in the offset printing process, the CMYK color model is applied. With him the colors be cyan, magenta, yellow and key (black) used, to represent a wide range of shades.

The colored printing in offset implies that the used printing machine has at least a plate per color used. A desired color using the CMYK model is printable like for example gold, complementary, also standardized colour palettes are used. The paper feed of printing machine distinguishes the printing process in sheet-fed and web offset printing. Sheetfed offset presses are for editions of 1,000 to 50,000 copies of a print job, while the web offset printing is profitable only 50,000 copies. Technical advances in printing technology have led to the development of waterless offset printing, UV pressure and of digital offset printing.

They leave which extend the range of printing materials depending on procedure achieve improvements in quality compared to the classical offset printing or but profitable and quickly realize small, individualized print jobs. Offset printing is an excellent choice for making affordable, all printed matter. The experts of Fatyela Druck GmbH are each interested for all questions concerning the possibilities of offset printing available.
