Digital printing provides a real alternative to the traditional flexo and letterpress printing methods. The process works well across a wide range of materials from 12 to 450 microns. The quality of print achieved on our state-of-the art HP Indigo WS6000 is excellent and matches that of litho.
Digital printing is ideal for variable data printing, personalization, customization, label proofing, quick response, and short to medium print runs.
Combine this with the full range of embellishments that are possible on our advanced Digicon finishing kit, and Digital print becomes a very attractive alternative for short to medium run lengths.
Digital printing is a cost-effective, quick-turnaround process that produces excellent results.
The process refers to a method of printing from a digital based image directly to a substrate. The ink is applied via an offset blanket. Each layer of ink is built up on the blanket and then transferred in one hit onto the label substrate, giving perfect registration every time. The process does not require ink mixing, printing plates or screens, resulting in a quicker and less-expensive make-ready time.
Advantages of Digital print
- No plates or screens required
- Easy changeover from sort to sort
- High quality picture-like print
- Minimal set-up time and low set-up costs
- Built in multicolor registration system
- Capable of producing sequential data
- Variable printing - each printed piece can have different information on it providing personalization and customization unmatched by analog processes.
- Mass and batch printing runs are giving way to the digital printer's ability to have shorter print runs, mass customization, and less turn-around time.
Disadvantages of Digital print
- Slower speed
- No metallic or fluorescent inks
- Some limitations for aggressive application environments
