Offset printing projects at Printing Unlimited involve the development of plates for printing. Thanks to decades of innovative and ever-evolving engineering, platemaking is efficient, making it easy for you to enjoy the exacting quality of offset printing for a variety of projects. 

Most popularly, Printing Unlimited in Fort McMurray produces business cards, near miss cards, FLHA, safe work permits, annual reports, and more, using offset printing machinery, including the Suprasetter platemaker.

More about CtP 

Computer to Plate is the clear choice for Printing Unlimited in platemaking production because of the reduced impact the process has on the environment. With CtP, a digital image on a computer is transferred directly to a printing plate. CtP plates do not require film development – these are chemistry-free plates, so no harmful solvents or film waste is involved.
