Digital Printing vs. Offset Printing
We offer both offset and digital printing, but do you know the difference? Let’s take a look.
- 1) Technology
In offset printing, etched metal plates, generally made of aluminum, are used. These plates transfer an image onto a rubber blanket which is then rolled onto a sheet of paper or other substrates. It is called offset because the ink is not transferred directly onto the paper. In digital printing, electrostatic rollers, also called drums, apply toners or liquid inks onto the paper, instead of plates.
- 2) Time
Offset printing is a time-consuming process as one plate is used for one colour and the plates need to be etched for each image. Also, the press needs to run for a few minutes on scrap sheets of paper to make sure the plates are properly inked. Digital printing is faster than the offset method. Elimination of setup time and plates make shorter runs possible, thus ensuring incredible turnaround times.
- 3) Cost
Since offset printing requires multiple plates and extensive setup, the cost is higher than digital. However, the paper and ink used for offset printing are less expensive than those used in digital.
- 4) Volume
Offset printing is best for higher volumes of copies (not for a higher number of sheets) whereas digital printing is ideal for a lower volume. This is because offset printing has a significant initial equipment set-up cost; therefore, the cost becomes less expensive as quantity increases.
