What is the
difference between Digital Printing and Traditional
KB employs a 'Digital Workflow;' whereby graphics files can be transferred (direct) to the machines in our printing department. The final printed product is a true original, not a copy. Every printed page is an exact replica of the original.
Offset Printing remains the industry's most common means of producing printed material -- with over two-thirds of all printing performed utilizing this photo-image reproduction technique. From magazines and books to maps and business forms -- offset is the most efficient means when large formats are required or where the quantity requirements are very high.
What is Green
Getting started with your printed materials is as easy as requesting recycled paper. And, you'll be surprised to find out how much of the stock and packaging you are already using are made from post-consumer waste and recycled materials. These days, recycled paper doesn't mean you have to see the fibers in the sheet. Modern non-toxic bleaching methods allow for bright white and solid color stock in all weights and sizes.
But paper is only the first step... There are vegetable oil based inks that conform to ASA standards with less than 5 percent volatile organic hydrocarbons (VOCs), and safer solvents that replace poisonous chemicals. Green printers such as KB OFFSET purchase many materials that are already prepared using renewable energy (such as paper from FSC certified companies). This is referred to as 'Chain of Custody' -- where every step in the process is checked for environmentally-friendly practices.
KB also utilizes everything from low-watt LED and CFL bulbs that produce bright work areas with less energy consumption to solar powered servers -- keeping this website's (and your) carbon footprint to an absolute minimum.

LPI means Lines Per Inch, and generally refers to the frequency of the halftone screen. This determines the crispness and contrast of an image printed on a particular grade of paper using a certain printing process.

imprinting on mugs and shirts?
There are several factors that affect the length of time it takes for a print job to work its way through our plant:
1) Pre-Press -- The
amount of 'make-ready' necessary to prepare your job for
printing. If we are typesetting, doing design and layout,
this will require scheduling and production time. If you are
providing digital files, this will shorten the pre-press
time; but all jobs still require preparation,
trouble-shooting (pre-flighting) and scheduling.
If you are a Print on Demand client and/or we are providing fulfillment services, jobs may clear the shop within 24 hours. Generally, most (non-rush) print jobs are turned around with 10 days -- with less time for small jobs, and perhaps a little longer for more complicated jobs as outlined above.
Other variables include quantities, odd sizes, special processes,custom requests, etc.
Your customer service representative will be able to discuss turnaround times and options to meet your company's needs.
