How does it work?
In essence digital printing is when the image you desire to have printed is sent directly to the printer through a digital file. A clear high-resolution image is required for the best outcome.
After the image has been selected, crop marks are added as required in order to ensure that no unprinted edges remain on the final printed piece. After this is done printing can occur quickly onto the material of your choice.
Digital printing has proven to be a great alternative to traditional printing methods, such as lithography and flexography, as it eliminates time tedious steps and still has excellent quality.
Benefits of digital printing:
Digital printing is best suited for printing projects that require more attention to detail than accommodated with traditional screen printing. As it is processed by a computer and then printed directly onto the surface material, we can achieve this needed detail.
We print directly onto the surface material, which means there is less wastage such as plates and chemicals. In a sense, this makes it an eco-friendlier option.
- Faster turnaround
By eliminating the set-up process we can print quickly and on demand.
- Accurate prints
It is easy to tweak your colours to ensure that your final print is more accurate. We can also print samples to check quality and accuracy.
- Quality & colour
It is also easier to print in multiple colours - and you will be left with a vibrant print. This type of printing is especially suited for the printing of photographs.
- Cost effective
Digital printers do not require printing plates which makes them easier to set-up and maintain, which in turn makes them more affordable to use. This is ideal for printing needs with lower budgets or smaller businesses.
One of the best benefits of digital printing is its versatility to be customisable. As it is originally a digital piece, it is easy to adjust its colour, size, or design. From postcards to billboards, any size is possible!
