Rubber Blanket

The blanket wrapped around the cylinder that is essential to the offset printing process. It transfers the printed image from the forme onto the paper.

The term “offset” is derived from the process by which color is displaced onto the rubber blanket.

Printing over a blanket provides an even print surface which makes it possible to work with coarse and granular papers.
