Litho Print Process

As with any type of printing there is a set printing process for lithography. All printed colour images are made up of primary colours cyan, magenta and yellow. This is also known as the key colour Black (CMYK). The artwork design is then set-up on a computer and all the colours on the artwork are separated into CMYK and used to create a plate.

The plates are then collected together and inserted into the litho press. Each plate is then coated with a specific colour and then offset onto a cylinder (blanket). The cylinder is then used to make an impression onto the paper. The colour mix together to create the desired printed product.

Lithographic Printing FAQs

Lithography was invented in 1796 by a German author and actor, Alois Senefelder, to produce cheap theatrical works in wax. In present day lithography, the artwork is made of a polymer coating which is applied to a flexible metal plate, usually aluminium. To produce an item using lithographic print, the surface of the flat stone plate is made rough and etched slightly, and then divided up into hydrophilic areas that accept a film of water, and therefore will repel greasy ink. The hydrophobic areas will repel the water and accept the ink, due to the fact that the surface tension is far greater on the greasy image region, which remains dry.

At RP Printers we price all lithographic printing work on an individual basis. Simply get in touch and we’ll be happy to give you a quote for the work that you need carrying out.

Digital Printing tends to suit shorter print runs, whilst litho printing is more for longer runs. Digital involves printing a complete copy of a file at a time, whilst its lithography produces each required number of copies from a page separately, before the pages are collected together. Litho uses a plate, whereas digital prints direct from file to the machine.
