What is a print sample pack?
A print sample pack is a package of samples we can be print to show a client what the final product will look like. These are very helpful, also you can show it to clients. Some clients who are not familiar with the process. After that, you can show them examples for their specific needs, hence, it increases the potential revenue.
The print sample pack includes:

-One or more pages of a single color. Also, we can print on different types of paper. This allows to give an idea of what it will look like in the end.
-One or more pages that showcase a different color scheme and design layout. Furthermore we can also print them on different types of paper for you to compare.

The litho printing process
Lithography is a printing process that uses a flat surface and a grease-based ink. The lithographic stone, or “litho” comes from the Greek word “lithos”, which means “stone”. Limestone is the typical material for these. These days we use other materials that we smooth to be evenly porous.
The litho inks are generally oil-based and we apply them to the surface with a squeegee. The ink will adheres only to some parts of the stone. The ones that have no grease covering them. As a result, there is no smudging once we printed them.
Alois Senefelder invented Lithography. This was in 1796 by in Vienna, Austria.
In traditional printing, we would transfer the ink from a plate to paper. We press the the two together. Finally, the paper will absorb the ink.
When we print offset, we create an image on an aluminum plate with a rubber-like material called photopolymer. Secondly, this allows to print in higher quality and faster than traditional printing methods. The image on the plate is transferred onto paper. This happens as it is rolled over a large ink-covered metal drum that transfers ink from the plate to the paper’s surface using pressure and heat.
Obviously this pre-set up of the samples is more expensive, but is cheaper when the printing levels are big.
