Web offset printing differs from sheet-fed offset printing , in which individual pages of paper are fed into the machine.
Web offset is a form of offset printing in which a continuous roll of paper is fed through the printing press.
Pages are separated and cut to size after they have been printed.
Web offset printing is used for high-volume publications such as mass-market books, magazines, newspapers, catalogs and brochures.
There are two methods of web offset printing, known as heatset and coldset (or non-heatset).
In the heatset process, the ink is dried rapidly by forced-air heating.
In the non-heatset or coldset process, the ink dries more slowly by ordinary evaporation and absorption.
Some web offset presses transfer text and images to only one side of the print medium at a time. The paper width is usually between 11 and 56 inches (approximately 28 and 142 centimeters).
The paper is fed through the system at speeds ranging from 5 to 50 feet per second (approximately 1.5 to 15 meters per second).
