Digital Vs Offset:
One of the key differences between digital and offset printing is how each prints on media. With offset, ink is absorbed into the paper. Conversely, with digital, dry ink or tones rests on top of the paper to create the image. Offset requires large quantities to be printed whilst digital requires only one, however don't be fooled the break-even point can be reached very soon depending on quantities. Size of the paper and finished product plays a vital role in deciding where we as printers decide to print your job, be it digital or offset. In addition with our new CGS software we can now control the digital and offset quality and colour is no longer such a big issue weather we print one job digital and the other offset.
