DIGITAL PRINTING

Digital printing is the process that transfers an image directly from the press onto the media substrate. So unlike traditional offset methods requiring a metal printing plate, digital deposits the ink or toner direct onto the paper. ‘Small Format’ refers to the physical sheet size the machine can handle, usually restriced to an oversized A3.

Ever considered personalising your print? Because of the direct transfer process in digital, every sheet can potentially be different, either with variable text or variable images.

OUR DIGITAL PRESSES

HP INDIGO

 

The Indigo press is synonymous with quality when it comes to digital printing. With a liquid ink it’s the closest match to an offset look and feel that you will get in the market. Newer machines, like Printcraft’s HP Indigo 7500, also have a few extra tricks under the bonnet. White ink, and a clear raised varnish to add an extra ‘tactile’ dimension.

XEROX IGEN

 

If the restrictive sheet size on your ‘average’ digital press is stifling your design, it’s time to take full advantage of our new Xerox iGen 150. This machine produces an EXTRA large sheet opening up a world of possibilities with landscape books and presentation folders. Throw in its ground breaking colour management system and sharper screen rulings and your creativity will know no limits.
