Considered as offset, the UV offset is a process that allows printing on many surfaces: paper, cardboard, plastic, pvc, canvas, specific surfaces….the difference with traditional offset is thin (UV specific ink, intermediate dryers) but yet the fact to polymerize the ink, and to dry immediately, allows us to realize documents without comparison with others known techniques, opening possibilities for several innovations. The UV offset technology offers an unlimited choice of surfaces with a very high quality and color matches, as well as an innovation capacity and an unlimited differentiation.

Traditional offset

The traditional offset is a printing process said flat, the printing and no-printing being on the same plane. Traditional offset denotes the antagonism between the water and the ink to achieve the postponement of the parties inked on paper: the ink is positioned on the parts of the plate which were not previously wet. This process permits a repulsion of the ink, and therefore a precise printer form with a reversible process.

Traditional printing made of
- 8 colors (72x102 cm),
- 6 colors + varnish (72x102 cm),
- 5 colors + varnish (75x105 cm),
- 4 colors + varnish (75x105 cm),
