What Are The Benefits of Digital Printing?
With recent advancements in the speed and quality of digital presses, the many benefits of digital printing are beginning to close the gap on traditional offset printing. For small-run jobs with quick turn-around, digital presses can offer tons of advantages including options for personalization while helping businesses stay up-to-date with the latest trends, emerging technologies, and changing customer preferences.
What Is Digital Printing?
Digital printing is the process of applying either toner or liquid ink onto various media substrates. This process differs from traditional, offset printing because it does not require the use of printing plates. Our digital presses are able to produce super sharp images even with solid color coverage. Typically, PDF files, or other digital files, are sent directly to the digital press where images and media can be applied onto any material type.
Otherwise referred to as “direct to press”, your digital print proof comes directly off the press, accomplishing your short-run prints. No matter the quantity, digital printing offers a high-quality solution. That’s why businesses turn to digital printing experts like those at Sheer Print Solutions for reliable, affordable print services delivered fast!
8 Advantages Digital Printing Delivers to Businesses
For small-run prints, digital presses offer a host of benefits that offset methods simply can’t accommodate.
Set-up expenses are much lower and thus reduce overall costs. We just require a PDF document of your print design that can be sent to our digital presses. We’ll even provide a test copy for approval before starting the job at no extra charge.
Digital presses use high-quality toners and liquid ink to produce sharper images and better designs. Our Indigo press, for example, employs ElectroInk, a liquid ink with smaller particles that result in more vibrant, clear images. Plus, with digital printing, making changes to achieve the final results you have envisioned for your printing project is easy!
3. Accuracy and repeatability for consistent results
Once you have approved your PDF proof, a digital print file goes directly into the printing stage, effectively creating your printing project. This file can then be saved for future use, with or without edits, and the design will be consistent with past projects. With digitally calibrated presses, prints can be repeated with outstanding quality. If you need 100 flyers every couple of weeks, then digital presses can re-produce your design exactly the same way every time.
4. Print-on-demand with faster turnaround rates:
Digital prints afford quick turnaround rates and can provide a finished product whenever you need it. For fast solutions, digital printing can produce same-day turnarounds. With no plates or make-readies, your production time is reduced. By eliminating the need for these costly preparations, your prints can be readily available faster than they would with traditional printing methods.
5. Eco / Greener Printing Method
In the digital printing process we can skip the plating process and we need less equipment and materials, which results in a decrease of carbon footprint and that's better for the environment.
6. Variable Data Printing:
Considered one of the types of digital printing, variable data printing (VDP) offers customization on a per unit basis.
7. Easy customization with design
Digital printing proves flexible and valuable with no set-in-stone plates and designs. Digital items are easy to revise and change between batches without too much hassle.
8. Exceptional color accuracy
Unlike other printing solutions, the digital printing method can guarantee 95 percent color accuracy. We have the ability to check and recheck the different shades in your design to create exactly your document full of colors.
