10-Micron Stochastic Screening
Our early investment in 10-micron printing and our dedication to perfecting its use has
allowed us to be recognized as one of North America’s premier offset printers. The power
of 10-micron stochastic screening breathes life into images by creating richer, more vivid
colours and a level of definition that can’t be matched. For print projects that require
impeccable accuracy, 10-micron stochastic screening produces images over three times
more detailed than conventional print techniques.
In traditional offset printing, dot patterns are equally spaced in a rigid pattern. A variety of
dot sizes are used to achieve tonality, density and shading. Under magnification, you can
easily identify the dot pattern used to create the image.
In the stochastic process, all dots used to create an image are equally sized and are
much smaller than those used in traditional offset printing. The dot pattern is randomised
to allow a wider range of definition and dimensional effects, as well as a broader
spectrum of colours. Light and dark areas are defined by using less or more dots to
achieve the variations.
Projects printed using 10-micron stochastic screening have greater detail, increased
clarity and greater dimensional effects, as well as better flesh tones for a more realistic
result. Colour is also controlled more effectively, allowing for a broader colour spectrum
with smoother gradations.
Colour Management is an integral part of our proofs and one of the key elements of our
production process. To ensure that we provide our clients with accurate and consistent
colour representation, we have established colour profiles, allowing us to replicate our
proofs to better match our press sheets. Our colour management system ensures that
colour is stable from one run to the next.
The Print by Premier is equipped with a variety of press configurations that provide
customers with print options up to 10 colours. We can provide single pass solutions with
our perfecting presses. At Lowe-Martin we can enhance the printed press sheet with in-
line aqueous coating. We provide a wide variety of aqueous coatings to choose from.
Our colour management software provides connectivity from our prepress to our presses.
Colour profiles established in prepress are sent to the presses electronically. The result is
a more efficient make-ready process, allowing us to achieve the desired colour, while also
reducing time and consumables involved.
The Print by Premier provides a full complement of bindery options including saddle-
stitching, perfect binding, cerlox, spiral, slot binding, punching, drilling, stitching, trimming,
folding, tabbing, collating, gluing and die cutting. The wide variety of bindery options
available allows us to take a job from an electronic file to a finished product.
