Looking for a quick turnaround?
This method of printing can boost the green credentials of any company. Unlike conventional printing, there are no pre-press stages between the digital document file and the final print, so there is no need for, film plates or photo chemicals.
Digital printing offers a quicker response time due to its minimal press setup. It simplifies the printing process, traditional plates and film are redundant, there is no press make-ready needed, no plate mounting, no registration adjustments and no ink keys. There are less steps and people involved in the printing process, and as result the final product can be delivered quicker.
Enabling companies to make financial savings is another benefit offered by digital printing. Traditional printing services have always had quotas or minimum orders required when you used their services. However, because of the flexibility of the printing press, digital printing companies do not have these sorts of boundaries, proving the freedom for the businesses and individuals to save and get the exact amount that they need.
Digital printing is the ideal method of producing short- to medium-runs in more effective ways than traditional print. Digital data is easily stored and updated; therefore changes are easily made either prior to printing or in the following batch. Digital printing allows more effective print management: there's no need for bulk stock and no need to dump out of date stock.
Long print runs in perfect quality!
Offset lithography creates clear, smooth, sharp images and text on a variety of materials. With traditional offset lithography, the blanket--that is, the part of the press which presses against the paper or printing surface--is made of a soft rubber which conforms to almost any paper surface or material, unlike systems which use inflexible metal plates for printing. Modern offset presses frequently use computer-to-plate systems, which further increase the clarity and sharpness of the image.
Much of the expense of printing with offset lithography comes from setup costs, and printing requires little maintenance. Offset lithography isn't cheaper for small projects. However, the unit cost of each page goes down as the quantity printed goes up, making offset lithographic printing the cheapest, most cost-effective method for producing commercial quantities of high-quality printed items.
Lithographic printers use equipment for any length of press run. The slower, more precise sheet-fed lithographic presses are used for short- and medium-run printing like art reproduction, coupons, direct mail inserts, greeting cards and posters. The high-speed, more efficient web presses are used for medium- and long-run printing like advertising flyers, books, catalogues, magazines and newspapers. In addition, lithographic presses work not just on paper but on a wide variety of printing surfaces, including cloth, leather, metal, plastic and wood.
