When it comes to litho printing, we often get asked a number of questions, take a look at our FAQs...

What is lithography?

Lithography came around in 1796 and was invented by a German author and Actor to product cheap theatrical works in wax. Today lithography is the artwork of polymer coating which can be applied to a flexible metal plate, usually aluminum.

How does it work?

To break it down, when producing a item lithographically, the surface of the flatstone plate is made rough and is etched slightly then divided up into hydrophillic areas that accept a film of water, therefore it will repel the greasy ink. The hydrophobic areas repel the water and will accept the ink because the surface tensionis far greater on the greasy image region, which will remain dry and this explains the process of litho printing.

What are the benefits?

This type of print provides a clear print impression, this is because of the rubber surface blanket which works on a variety of textual surfaces and materials. The main characteristics of litho printing is that it gives a unwrinkled print appearance as well as lacking ring print and serrated edges

Lithpgraphy is a efficient process and can print up to 50,000 sheets an hour, meaning things can be done concisely and effectively.

When it comes to larger products, lithography is very cost effective as it produces multiple prints of great quality for a cheaper cost.

This type of print is very flexible and can be used on a variety of surfaces, including leather, plastic, wood, cloth and metal, whilst still providing a quality finish.

What is the difference between litho and digital printing?

Digital printing is a job which can go directly from a computer file to the plate, meaning there's no need for films, making digital printing a quick process. With litho print, it uses a plate which is specially coated so the ink sticks to dry areas of the plater and the ink image is transferred or off-set onto a rubber blanket, creating a printed image.
