Why Digital Print for Packaging?
Digital printing is a four-colour process reproduction method that uses electronic files (such as PDF artwork) and dots of colour, to produce an image using toner or ink.
Unlike conventional printing, digital print allows multiple designs to be printed without the need for costly plates. This makes digital print ideal for packaging.
Our customers come to us for digital print to alleviate the frustrations caused by long lead times, costly plate charges and the need for multiple sorts or designs.
Digital print is very cost effective for packaging because there is less initial setup involved. We can offer quick turnaround with jobs often printed and despatched within 2-3 days from artwork approval. Furthermore, jobs can be personalised as they are printed with variable data – such as a sequential number, name or address.
