Digital Printing Explained
Digital printing has become increasingly popular over recent years since it was bought to the market in the 1990's. With such high standards of quality and colour, coupled with speed and personalisation, digital is increasingly finding itself the preferred choice due to its flexible nature.
Digital Printing offers a very different approach to Litho, assembling each image from a complex set numbers and mathematical formulas. These images are captured from a matrix of dots, generally called pixels, this process is called digitising. The digitised image is then used to digitally control deposition of ink, toner or exposure to electromagnetic energy, such as light, to reproduce images. The mathematical formulas also allow for algorithms to compress the data. It also gives a method of Calibration or Colour Management Systems which helps to keep images looking at the same colour despite where they are view or printed. One important function that the mathematical formulas allowed was the development of a common language for digital printing it is called PostScript and was developed by Adobe. To see what PostScript looks like open a PDF or EPS in a text editor, the code seems very intricate but to a computer it's just a simple code of instructions.
One of the most important advantages that digital printing offers is a quicker response time due to its minimal press setup and it's built in multi-colour registration system. This eliminates many of the upfront, time consuming processes that can cause analogue printing methods to have a slower turn-around time. Another advantage of digital printing is the ability to offer variable printing; this means that each printed piece can have different information on it providing personalisation and customisation unmatched by analogue processes.
Digital Printing Advantages
Smaller quantities with quicker turnarounds
Little set-up needed enabling next day, or even same day delivery.
For smaller print runs, digital printing is often most cost effective.
With no minimum quantity, you print what you need
No job is too small, so ideal for proofing single items before committing to larger runs or advanced copies that match the main print run that will follow.
Personalisation - Customise text or images specific to individuals or create different versions of a document.
Wide Colour Range
Digital benefits from additional colours (white, orange, violet and green), which results in a wider colour gamut when used in conjunction with the standard CMYK palette, giving greater depth in imagery and more vibrancy. White ink and digital spot varnish are also options too.
