Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between offset printing, digital printing, and inkjet printing?
Offset printing uses plates to transfer an image to a rubber roll, which is colored with ink rollers and then rolled onto a sheet of paper. The ink is not directly transferred onto the paper. Digital printing doesn’t use plates and uses a laser to create an image template, which is then transferred to paper using toner. Inkjet printing is a type of digital printing that involves spraying tiny droplets of ink onto paper or other materials to create an image or text.
Offset printers are used for larger projects since it’s usually more cost-effective at a higher volume than digital printing and prints high-quality images with accurate color on various materials. Digital and inkjet printers are used for smaller quantity jobs or variable data jobs since it doesn’t require plates to be set up, which allows for print flexibility.
What type of projects is offset printing used for? What about digital and inkjet printing?
While there are many variables that go into determining which printer should be used for a particular project, offset printing projects typically include newspapers, ads, magazines, catalogs, books, etc. Digital printing projects typically include custom direct mail pieces, letters, business cards, banners, wraps, etc. Inkjet printing is widely used for printing photographs, posters, and other graphics. It is also used for printing onto non-paper materials, such as plastics and fabrics.
No matter what type of project you have, our team will work with you to ensure we have the correct project specifications so we can produce a quality piece you can be proud of.
I have a print project that is custom and needs to include individual names. Can you do that?
Yes, we can! We would work with you to complete the design and get the list of names. Then, we’d add them to your design so you can review your proofs with the individual names included. Your project would then be produced on one of our inkjet or digital printers.
