In today’s digital world, it is hard to believe a process that was invented in 1796 is still relevant. However, FifthColor produces large format high volume lithography (litho) printing for some of the world’s largest brands.

Fast and Cost Effective

Litho Printing is the most cost-effective at large volumes.

Lithography printing involves a much more technical setup than digital, and the setup time can be longer. However, for those that are looking for print quantities over 5000, litho printing typically gives you a much better cost. FifthColor litho printing experts produce products with exceptional quality, without impacting the finish.

Litho printing’s key advantage is the ability to produce large quantities at unmatched speeds. In many cases, FifthColor can run more than 3000 sheets an hour on a single press, and this could mean tens of thousands of finished pieces per hour.

We’ve found that FifthColor customers will choose litho printing because of the need to use specific ink colors. Because Litho printing still uses ink, our experts can identically match specific Pantone colors or mix custom colors.
