Offset Lithography

Offset Lithography is a widely used printing technique where the inked image is transferred from a plate to a blanket, then to the printing surface. When used in combination with the lithographic process, which is based on the repulsion of oil and water, the offset technique employs a flat (planographic) image carrier on which the image to be printed obtains ink from ink rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a film of water, keeping the non-printing areas ink-free.

CPCC has three offset presses and specialized finishing equipment to help teach and train in Offset. Students make flyers, business cards, folding cards, raised letter printing, notepads, bookmarks, color brochures, etc.

We offer many curriculum classes as well as Industry Training in Offset.
