Digital printing is a method of printing in which a digital-based image is printed directly to a sheet of paper or other substrate. Kwik Kopy Printing Dallas performs a very large volume of digital printing, where images from graphic design software and other digital sources are printed using high-volume laser-based professional digital presses and large format printing equipment. Digital printing may have a higher incremental cost per page than more traditional offset printing methods, but this cost difference is offset by avoiding the cost of all the technical steps required to make printing plates and set up the offset press. Digital printing also allows for on-demand printing, short turnaround time, and even a modification of the image (variable data) used for each impression. The savings in labor and the ever-increasing capability of digital presses means that digital printing has reached the point where it can match or supersede offset printing’s ability to produce larger print runs of several thousand sheets at a low price and outstanding quality.
The greatest difference between digital printing and traditional methods such as offset printing, flexography, gravure, or letterpress is that there is no need to replace printing plates in digital printing, whereas in analog printing the plates are replaced each time that the image changes. This results in quicker turnaround time and lower cost when using digital printing.
