Types of Printing
Whatever your vision is for your next print project, Powerhouse Print Solutions can make it a reality. Although we will employ whichever print method is most suitable for the project, our clients’ jobs typically fall within two main types of printing: digital and offset.
Digital printing is a printing technique where the print image is sent directly to the printer via PDFs or other compatible software and eliminates the need for a printing plate.
Offset printing is a printing technique where the inked image is transferred from a plate to a rubber blanket and then to the printing surface.

3. The person at the office, on the committee, or new on the job who got stuck with a finished product and doesn’t know what to do with it next.
