The Advantages of Digital Print

February 11, 2015

 

The growth of digital printing technology has brought more advancements, options and exciting new features to today’s commercial printing. Digital printing eliminates many of the mechanical steps needed for conventional printing, including making films and color proofs, manually stripping pieces and making plates.

 

Environmentally friendly:

 

With the craze of everything “going green” this is a much desired advantage. 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.

 

Faster:

 

Digital printing offers a quicker response time due to its minimal press set up, It simplifies the printing process, traditional plates and film are redundant, there is no make press-ready needed, no plate mounting, no registration adjustments and no ink keys. There are fewer steps and less people involved in the printing process, as a result, the final product can be delivered faster.

 

Cheaper:

 

Traditional printing services have always had quotas or minimum orders required when people use their services. However, because of the flexibility of the printing press, digital print companies do not run into the types of boundaries, providing the freedom for businesses and individuals to save money and get the exact amount they need.

 

Product matching:

 

Every print is the same, so there are more accurate counts, less waste and fewer variations due to not having to balance ink and water during a press run.

 

Short runs:

 

Digital printing is the ideal method of producing short runs in a more effective way than traditional print. Digital data is easily stored and updated, therefore allowing information to be edited either prior to printing or before the following batch. Digital printing also allows more effective print management, there’s no need for bulk stock and no need to dump out of date stock. Short runs offered by digital print mean that companies and individuals can tailor their message to their audiences. It’s economic both in the sense of time and cost.

 

Proofing:

 

Digital print offers accurate proofs, since you see an actual example of what your piece is going to look like. Accurate color proofing for offset printing can be very expensive.
