Lithography plays a critical role in the manufacturing of product identification.  Specifically, fine lettering and detailed graphics require the precision of lithography.  In addition, lithography and process color are used for the reproduction of full color photos.  There are at least four areas where lithography offers advantages over screen printing:

  • Fine Details (lettering, graphics, patterns)
  • Precise registration of graphics
  • Subtle color variations achieved through use of halfones
  • Process color (CMYK) and the wide spectrum of colors available
