Of the newspaper, about the milk bag up to the refined business stationery, offset printing is a good quality and economic choice, with about two-thirds of all printed products are produced.

Simultaneous, independent development efforts in the United States and Germany led at the beginning of the 20th century to the emergence of offset paper. Starting point of each printing process is the production of the printing form. Here, the desired content is transmitted on the pressure plate. Nowadays this is done manually, but through automated processes, deliver content directly from the computer on the plate. Printing forms for offset printing can be produced faster and cheaper than those for high – or low-pressure processes.

The offset printing process based on the liquid attraction of different materials. An offset printing plate has hydrophilic and lipophilic areas. The hydrophilic part attracts water, holding it, and can not be wetted by colors. In contrast, the lipophilic parts reject water, but hold color. The combination of the two properties in a printing plate allows to distribute colours only on the lipophilic areas and reach an exact control of the colour impression. The offset is implemented by first wet the hydrophilic portions of the pressure plate with water be following the lipophilic areas with color.
