With companies having to meet important deadlines and individuals becoming more and more computer savvy in the 21st Century printing needs are increasing. Not only do important deadlines need to be met but quality is of the utmost importance.
Digital printing in South Africa has become an ever increasing business. The digital method differs somewhat from other traditional methods.
- No printing plates required so every print can be different.
- No need to check for position of images.
- No penetration of ink into paper- it forms a thin layer on the surface of the page- less ink is used.
- No loss of definition.
- Low dot gain therefore more detail.
- Environmentally friendly- no setup waste.
Digital printing does not require large amounts of time for initial setup;therefore it is used for large amounts of printing and is an inexpensive method to use for small printing needs. Digital printing can be used for both personalized printing needs as well as variable data printing. This method allows for copy, images and graphics to be changed on each print without having to stop or slow down the printing process. Printing on demand (POD) also uses digital printing for short books made up of different page quantities as well as for binding techniques.
Digital printing gives clients choice when it comes to the variety of papers that they are able to print work onto. This makes the work more personal and unique. Whether clients choose to print onto normal 80 gsm paper or take advantage of the sleek and professional look of photographic paper; digital printing produces quality, bright colours and improves customer satisfaction.
