Dry offset printing
Dry offset printing is an efficient way of printing your design directly on to on large quantities of plastic collapsible tubes. We have a state-of-the-art printer that will print up to 5 colours on your tube and produce a perfect finish to your product, even in large quantities. It is a printing process which uses a metal backed photopolymer relief plate, where the ink is transferred to a rubber blanket before being transferred to the substrate. This method is used for printing on injection moulded rigid plastic buckets, tubs and cups.
Why choose Dry offset printing?
Compared to other printing methods, dry offset printing is a particularly cost effective method for printing high quality images on to plastic products. It is a technique that is commonly used throughout the industry to transfer an image from a printing plate of up to 5 colours from a rubber pad on directly on to the surface of a plastic tube. It is called ‘dry’ as no oil or water is used in the process.
