A high-speed, high-throughput printing press which prints on a continuous roll of paper. The paper is then cut apart by a slitter to form final sheets. Web presses are usually used for high-volume print runs, because of their great speed; smaller runs are generally printed on presses that print a single sheet of paper at a time.
A press specifically designed to print rolls of paper called webs, rather than sheets. A web press runs much faster than a sheet-fed press: as many as 40,000 images per hour versus a maxi- mum of about 14,000 per hour on a sheet-fed press.
printing press that prints on rolls of paper passed through the press in one continuous piece, as opposed to sheets of paper. Web presses are used for high volume printing such as newspapers and magazines.
Press that prints from rolls of paper, usually cutting it into sheets after printing. Web presses come in many sizes, the most common being mini, half, three quarter (also called 8-pages) and full (also called 16-pages).
An offset press that uses a continuous roll of paper rather than individual sheets (Sheet-fed). Web Offset is of lower quality then sheet-fed printing but is common where the press runs involve very large numbers of copies. Because the paper is a continuous roll and is moving very fast it is more difficult to achieve accurate registration.
