Capabilities

The first step in selecting a printing partner is knowing what we are capable of doing on your behalf. Below is an explanation of our various systems.

Offset Printing

This method involves transferring ink to a rubber or metallic cylinder, which then rolls an impression onto the paper, making magazine and catalog printing possible. Offset printing is ideal for rapidly creating large quantities of publications, postcards, brochures and more. The initial production time takes longer than digital printing, but your offset price per piece diminishes with quantity, Therefore, offset may be the preferable option if you’re needing more than 500 to 1,000 pieces created.

Digital Printing

In contrast to offset printing, digital printing does not use plates to transfer ink to paper. Instead, a digital file results from scanning a light source directly onto a receptive drum. Depending on the project you are creating, digital printing may be your best choice when you need fewer than 500 pieces. At Franklin, we offer printing solutions for all types of businesses regardless of the quantity or complexity of the job.

Screenprinting

With this stencil technique, a mesh is used to transfer ink with a squeegee moved across a silkscreen to fill open areas. Screenprinting is the process we use to print on clothing, fabrics, thick films, decals, and plastic products.

Specialty Products

Franklin is your source for specialty printing of promotional products such as wearable items, office accessories, tradeshow items, bags, drinkware, housewares, luggage, writing instruments, and more.
