Digital Printing & Traditional Methods

The Advantages

Digital Printing

Large format digital printing works very similarly to how your printer at home works - but on a much larger scale. The turnaround time on completing a project is much quicker than traditional printing as it does not require creating plates or film. There are no colour limitations and any changes required can easily be edited and the project recreated.

Offset Printing

Traditional or offset printing requires an image to made on a plate, which is then transferred to a piece of rubber before being printed onto paper.

Print Onto Any Surface

Digital Printing & Traditional Methods

Lithography is accomplished based on the immiscibility of water and oil. Rollers are used to apply the ink images and letters, water is attracted to the areas that are meant to stay blank, this keeps them free from ink throughout the process. This means that it is possible to print onto any surface or paper and delivers a higher quality on the image.

Another advantage is that there are no streaks or ink spot on the finished product. One of the disadvantages of using this type of printing is that turnaround time for a project is generally longer than when printing digitally; As a plate needs to be created as well as the film and preparation for the printing process.
