What is a Lithographic Printer?
As a Lithographic Printer we use lithography to achieve large volume high quality prints. In offset Lithography the printed image is achieved through a fine chemical balance of water and oil based inks. The image areas of the plate are great at receiving the ink and repel the water use in Lithographic Printing; whereas the non-image areas are water receptive. The water wets the non-image areas of the plate and prevents the ink from adhering.
