When it comes to printing on paper, we offer two print methods to choose from, Digital toner based printing and Offset soy based ink printing. Each technology offers amazing quality, advantages and disadvantages.
Digital print technologies allows for short-run printing of many products, which prior to this technology, were not available in such low quantities. Print products such as booklets and perfect bound books. Digital pritning is also great for same day or next day printing. Another advantage of digital pritning is the ability to print on a wide range of paper stocks. This flexibility is also an advantage for many designers that are always challenging their creativity. Textured papers, uncoated finishes and colored card stocks are some of the design elements that digital printing offer graphic designers. Typically, digital flat pieces max out at 2500 quantities depending on size and paper, before it makes more sense economically to print offset.
Offset, soy based ink printing, is also commonly known as lithography which is the term most utlized in commercial printing. Offset printing is the highest print quality available and its the prefered print method for large print runs of most jobs. Magazines, booklets, books, posters, fliers and brochures that print in quanties of 2500 or greater usually print on our offset machines. Offset printing limits our paper stock options that are available. Paper stocks tend to be mostly coated paper stocks ranging from 70lb gloss book to 16pt gloss coated cardstock.
