Digital offset printing is a print technology that involves the electrostatic charging of an imaging plate. The discharged areas receive the ink which is then transferred to a heated blanket, then to the photo drum and lastly to the substrate.
Extremely high dpi capabilities (over 800 dpi!) and color are the major strengths of this technology, but its weakness lies in durability. Coatings and laminates can be applied to protect the images from abrasion and chemical resistance.
