Protective Blanket Covers

As well as providing beautiful blinds and awnings, Coverlite Blinds also specialise in the supplying of printer roller blankets for commercial printing.

What are printer roller blankets and how are they used?
Protective printer roller blankets are padded covers which are used to protect printing and engraving rollers. Protective roller blankets are commonly used in the offset method of printing whereby the image needing to be printed is inked and then transferred from a plate onto a printer roller blanket and then onto the printing surface.

What are printing roller blankets made of?
Printer roller blankets are highly specialised pieces of equipment for the job that they fulfil. They are made from nylon coated with PVC (polyvinyl chloride) with a foam insert covered with cloth and fastened with Velcro.

What are the advantages of the offset printing method?
This particular printing method is popular compared to others because it is by far the cheapest, quickest and easiest way of producing high-quality prints in commercial quantities.

Offset printing also has the longest printing plate life due to the lack of contact between the printing plate and the printing surface and provides a consistently high level of print quality, producing images that are both clean and sharp.

In what sizes are protective blankets produced?
We provide a wide range of different printing roller covers which are specialised for whatever kind of document you want to print. All are made to measure and are available in any size you so wish.
