A print production that transfers (offsets) a design by first creating an aluminium printing plate with the image on it. The image on the plate is then transferred to rubber blankets or ink rollers and then to the print media or paper.
Offset prints are high quality producing sharper prints than digital printers. Offset is also more cost effective for larger quantity print jobs. However gradually offset printing is becoming more cost effective for some small run prints. For example a quantity of 250-500 prints is now starting to be cost competitive with professional digital printing.
The Marketing Efficiencies print team have access to an extensive range of paper and print media for offset printing. This includes a range of papers from raw uncoated, to double side coated gloss, to linen papers, metallic chrome mirror papers and much more. In terms of thickness Marketing Efficiencies current equipment can print on papers up to 400GSM. However if you need something thicker we can offer a mounting service. Whereby we print on a paper type you desire then mount (usually by gluing) onto a flute, corrugated cardboard, plastic, board etc…
Depending on the complexity of your job our offset printing service can take between 5 and 20 working days. For example a basic job of printing a4 brochures, posters and flyers can take as little as 3 days for production. However depending on your print media stock type it can take 3-4 days to order and receive your print media. For more complicated jobs such as product packaging print production can take up to 20 day.
Offshore offset printing is a new service Sydney based Marketing Efficiencies offer. The offset printing service typically saves customers up to 40% off their existing offset printing expenses.
The process is very similar to going to a local Australian offset printer. With offshore offset printing electronic artwork is acquired from customers and sent to the Marketing Efficiencies Shanghai offset print centre. Depending on the job the customer may be flown to our print centre to inspect proofs and do press checks. This is very common for first time customers trying offset printing who are unsure about quality printing. Alternatively and the more common method, customers are sent a proof on the stock they have specified for approval. Unlike many printers who send proofs on their generic stock Marketing Efficiencies insist on using the specified stock so a customer can see exactly how the offset print job will turn out.
With the proof approved by the customer, Marketing Efficiencies then proceeds to finish the print job and deliver Australia wide. While the process of printing offshore dramatically saves customers money it does increase the total production time as the delivery can take up to 3 weeks. This of course depends on the order as in some cases the printed job is sent to the customer via air-freight instead of sea-freight which obviously takes much less time.
Why is offshore offset printing a better option?
Offshore offset printing is ideal for those who print a large quantity of materials that have a long shelf life. For example annual catalogues or brochures are ideal as opposed to weekly newspapers or monthly magazines. It is a better option simply because it is much more affordable. Furthermore, the quality is maintained by customer proofing and the Marketing Efficiencies quality assurance team.
