How Does Offset Printing Work

I stumbled across this via my Twitter feed, which led me to the original post here at

It’s a great way to explain to laypersons how offset printing works and may be of interest to anyone who has ever wondered how business cards are produced this way. This, by the way, underscores why it is always better to explain things using graphics rather than wall after wall of words!

The original file was a single JPEG file making it somewhat unwieldy to view – so I converted it into a slideshow for myself and for easier viewing.
