digital PRINTING

is it all the same?

Digital printing refers to the printing process that transfer image directly onto a media substrate. So unlike traditional and more costly offset methods requiring a metal printing plate, digital deposits the ink or toner directly onto the substrate.

But do all digital printing presses produce the same quality?

 

 

MACHINERY

All the same? Definately not. Digital press range from glorified photo copies, to offset quality presses. Check with your supplier first to understand the limitations and finish of their equipment so your won’t be caught off guard by the finished result.

operators

Now that you understand the difference in the level of machinery, the same goes for operators. At Printcraft our digital operators are printers, so they’re trained in colour management.

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.
