Available Printing Methods

Most probably you are looking for the perfect print services. You have a business and need help; Logo design or some graphic design to impress new clients. Look no further.

Serving our clients with excellence starts with high quality offset printing. Here is how we provide the highest quality products using offset printing processes.

Offset printing is a technique in which the inked image is transferred (or "offset") from a plate to a rubber 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 image carrier on which the image to be printed obtains ink from ink rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a water-based film (called "fountain solution"), keeping the non-printing areas ink-free.

 

Advantages of offset printing compared to other printing methods include:

  • Consistent high image quality.
  • Offset printing produces sharp and clean images.
  • The rubber blanket conforms to the texture of the printing surface and this unique process helps creating the highest quality images
  • High quality printing at lowest possible prices
  • High speep printing
  • Good for long run projects.

At HikePrint for short runs we also use digital presess for our local customers and for rush orders.

In digital printing method the digital image (file) prints directly to a variety of media. In digital printing there is no plate used anymore but there are rollers that carry information about the media. The unite price for digital printing is usually higher than offset printing methods and it's good for small-run jobs. Digital printing allows for on-demand printing, short turnaround time, and even changes on each image which is called variable data such as postcard printing with targeted customer.

We also use wide format HP LaserJet printers for poster orders. With Large format printers we are able to print on photo gloss and satin paper as well as vinyl material used for banners and signs.
