Our Waterless Printing
Fortunately for our customers, Overnight Prints made the decision to go green early and
invested in waterless printing – a cutting edge press technology that is far safer for the environment.
the majority of printing companies still operate outdated print presses that use toxic chemicals
and consume over 25,000 gallons of water per month. That's enough to fill an Olympic size swimming
pool. Overnight Prints is proud to be the only major online printing company that exclusively uses
waterless printing, a practice superior to conventional lithographic printing with regards to both
print quality and concern for the earth.
Here are just a few advantages of waterless printing as opposed to the industry standard conventional lithographic printing:
Precision printing out of dots, better fine drawing, lower dot gain
Printing with thicker ink layers possible, therefore higher density values with brilliant printing results in less start-up waste
No more emission problems due to the lack of isopropanol in the dampening solution
Simpler machine construction due to lack of dampening unit and peripheral devices
No trapping, better consistency across the print run of inks printed together in the screen
Fewer potential error sources, as there is no longer dampening solution to have an influence on ink drying
The oxidation of metallic inks, e.g. offset silver, is no longer possible
