Offset Printing vs Digital Printing

There are basically two different methods of printing — Offset Printing and Digital Printing.

Offset Printing

The ink is not transferred directly onto the paper. This technology uses plates which transfer the image onto a “blanket” and then it’s applied to the paper.

The advantages of offset printing include

● Cost effective for large quantities

● Price per piece is reduced as the quantity increases

● Customized finishes are available on a large variety of papers

● Custom inks such as metallic and Pantone colors can be used.


Digital Printing

Digital printing uses toner rather than plates.

The advantages of digital printing include

● Best for smaller quantity jobs

● Price for short runs is lower

● Lower minimum quantities

● Can accommodate varied data

Both of these printing methods will give you a high quality professional

looking product that you can be proud of.
