At Minuteman Press, Poole we offer both Traditional Lithographic Printing and Digital Printing and can advise you of the best option for your job - in terms of process suitability and cost.
Digital printing refers to printing from a digital based image directly onto a variety of media. Digital printing has a lower set up cost than traditional lithographic printing methods (as it does not required the technical set up to make printing plates) but generally has a higher charge per page.
It allows for on-demand printing, short turnaround times and even variable data changes on each page. In recent years, due to the advances with this technology, digital printing now provides, in many circumstances, a direct quality comparison to litho printing. These days even the professionals have a problem telling the difference!!
This printing method is ideal for short run items, quick turnaround or multi-page documents as these jobs are collated at the same time as they are printed.
