So named after the process of offset lithography, which in the days when letterpress was still the predominant printing method was used for the reprinting of books when the metal type was no longer available, the term describes the practice of photographically reproducing the text of one edition of a book in order to create another (for instance, from the us edition to the uk edition, or from an original hardback to a reduced size paperback). Hence, offset free, the charge made for the right to reproduce an existing text.

CJ McDaniel

CJ grew up admiring books. His family owned a small bookstore throughout his early childhood, and he would spend weekends flipping through book after book, always sure to read the ones that looked the most interesting. Not much has changed since then, except now some of those interesting books he picks off the shelf were designed by his company!
