WHAT IS DIGITAL PRINTING?
Digital Printing is the fastest growing sector in the print industry due to its recent technological advances. Digital printing avoids the costs of all the technical steps required to produce press plates. It is most effective for smaller quantity runs and last-minute jobs that require quick turnaround times.
Digital Printing allows for on-demand printing, short turnaround time, and even a modification of the text/ image (variable data) used for each impression. The savings in labour and the ever-increasing capability of digital presses mean that digital printing rivals offset printing’s ability to produce larger print runs of several thousand sheets at a low price.
DIGITAL PRINTING VERSUS TRADITIONAL OFFSET PRINTING
Today’s most advanced digital colour printers deliver some amazing print production power with extremely high resolution for Offset-like quality.
Digital Printing provides an eye dropping quality and quick turnaround that most projects require. Small quantities, large quantities, bond paper or label stock, single-sided or double-sided, whatever your need, when you need it.
The greatest difference between digital printing and traditional offset printing is that there is no need to replace printing plates in digital printing. Digital printing is an ideal solution for small to medium sized print runs that require quick turnaround times; offset printing is better suited for high-volume print runs. Another key difference is digital printing’s variable data capability. If each piece requires a unique image, code, name or address, digital printing is the route to go.
