You cannot deny this fact that technology has changed our lives. The world has progressed so fast especially in the last 20 years. From education to electronics we have progressed much as compared to the past.  Although every technology has its own pros and cons mostly technology has changed our lives in positive ways. Here we will discuss the impact of technology on the field of custom packaging and printing specifically offset printing technology.

There are many printing firms in the USA such as Dukepackaging.com that are using this technology. Without further ado, let’s check out what matters.

Use of Offset Printing Technology on the Boxes


Although it’s a common printing technique but still many of the people are unaware of this technology. In this technology, an inked image is transferred from a plate to the blanket. After this process, it is transferred to the printing surface. This technology can be applied to various products like paper, cardboard material, tin and much more.

This technology was first used in England in 1875. Later on, it was used in the United States for various printing purposes.

Usually, after the offset printing on the boxes, the next step is the use of lamination on the boxes. You can choose any option like Matte or Gloss lamination after the completion of the first step that is printing on the boxes. The last step includes cutting (die-cut) of the boxes into various styles, shapes, and sizes. It also includes the addition of windows in the boxes. The step of pasting in the boxes is not mandatory for every kind of box but for some of the packaging boxes pasting is a must.

There are many countries that are using this technology using the USA. Also in Germany people are using latest offset technology.
