A Quick Crash Course on Printing

Offset Printing

This is a lithographic process that we run on large press beds. At Rowe's, we have one color, two color and four color presses. This process involves creating negative plates with the image printed on them. The plate is then inked and applied to the paper. This process is usually reserved for large runs due to the labor intensive set-up and break-down and is also the best value for your prints.

This is generally a CMYK additive process, meaning that we combine the four ink colors of Cyan (C), Magenta (M), Yellow (Y) and Black (K). The colors are screened and layered over top one another to create the desired hue. We also offer spot colors of exact Pantone mixtures for perfect matching of your branding.

Digital Printing

This printing process is used by our digital printing machinery. They also use the four color additive CMYK process but use a different type of ink which is applied and dried within the copier. This method is preferred for smaller runs and jobs that are time sensitive. We use Canon and Konica Minolta machines for our digital printing.
