Digital printing is a fairly new process in the world of printing but it has some great advantages that businesses can use to their advantage. Not only is it a new technology for printing but it also makes it just a bit easier on everyone.
Digital printing usually requires no set up fees, which when compared to offset printing is a huge savings. Businesses can avoid the large initial fee and print as many materials as they need. Also, when you print more with digital printing, your price tends to go down. A higher volume of the same project will result in less cost for the printer as well as for you. The actual scale of when things get cheaper depends on the project.
Offset printing has always been high quality but now you can get the same quality, with less cost, from digital printing. If you put the same piece printed with the different methods side by side, it would be very difficult to notice a difference unless you were trained in the craft. The value of digital printing makes it the smarter option for many businesses because the quality is essentially the same but the price is much cheaper.
With less overall cost and ease of printing, there are so many more options that you can choose from. Not only can you choose from different colors of paper or different paper stocks, but you can also choose from different advanced printing techniques. Many of these techniques are found with offset printing but you can find them cheaper using digital printing.
With other methods of printing, it can take a long time to get the final product in the hands of the customer. That is because there tends to be more of a set up and take down, especially if you are printing other things. With digital printing, it is very fast and there is no pre-press stage. You simply need to digital files and that makes it so much faster of a process.
Easy to Change
If you are trying to print some of the same things but with small variances, it is really easy to change your digital designs in the system. You cannot do this with other types of printing or it will take a long time.
Digital printing is the future of printing, especially for business needs. There are so many benefits, in most cases it will not make sense to use any other method.
