Lithographic printing

Offset lithography is a multi-stage printing process. It starts by creating an ink and water balance on a flat printing plate to create the image. It is then offset onto a printing blanket before being offset again onto the paper to give the finished result.

This is suited for medium to long print runs, up to the point at which web offset printing might be a more cost effective option. Different papers react differently to litho printing – Keith Marley Limited works directly with our print partners to ensure that the correct settings are applied throughout. We also choose the most appropriately configured machine for each individual job.

The majority of our print partners carry the following quality standards:
ISO 9001
ISO 14001 Environmental
ISO12746 Colour Management
