Offset printing technology uses plates, usually made from aluminum or polyester, which are used to transfer an image onto a rubber "blanket", and then rolling that image onto a sheet of paper. It's called offset because the ink is not transferred directly onto the paper.
Because offset presses run so efficiently once they are set up, offset printing is usually the best choice when larger quantities are needed, and provides accurate color reproduction, and crisp, clean professional looking printing.
