Offset Printing
Offset printing is one of the best quality compare to other printings. Offset printing also known as lithography which the inked image on metal plates is transferred (offset) to blankets and then to the printing surface (paper). The image will be broken down into the primary printing colours: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black (CMYK) and it is commonly known as 4 colours printing.

Pantone Colour
Pantone Colour (Gold, Silver, etc.) are colours which can be used in offset printing. These colours does not require mixture from CMYK. Pantone colours each have their own metal plates when printing. Thus, the colour is more precise as the colour is consistent.

Fluorescent Inks
Fluorescent inks have the same properties as normal sheet offset inks with additional glowing properties. The printing products will have a glowing effect when they are under normal daylight.
The fluorescent effect is only temporary, as the fluorescent properties are accomplished by using special pigments, where it shows considerably lower fastnesses than conventional pigments. Fluorescent inks are processed like common sheet fed offset ink thus special image editing is not necessary.

Coated and Uncoated Card Stock
Coated paper is paper which had been coated by a compound to impact certain qualities to the paper. Meanwhile, uncoated paper is paper without the coated layer and it's often used printed paper, letterhead, etc. Difference between coated paper and uncoated paper is coated paper gives a shaper and brighter image compare to uncoated paper. This coating makes the coated paper less absorbent and has a better ink holdout.


Digital Printing
Digital printing is the process of transferring a document from a digital storage device to a printing substrate; therefore, the time frame for digital printing is fast. Modern printing methods such as laser printing and ink-jet printing are known as digital printing.


Silk Screen Printing
Silk screen printing is a printing technique using the stencil process. The image is superimposed on a mesh screen and the printing ink is then squeezed onto the printing surface through the area of the screen that is not covered by the stencil.
The advantage of silk screen printing is it can be apply to surfaces which cannot be done by offset and digital printing such as, acrylic and wood material.


UV Printing
UV printing inks are dried through a photomechanical process, which are very much different compare to conventional printing. In UV printing, when the inks are exposed to ultraviolet lights, the inks will turn from a liquid to solid. This printing are usually done on plastic materials, wood materials, etc.
