Digital Printing vs. Offset: Which is Best for Your Order?
When planning a print order, a common question many ask is: “Should I ask for digital printing or offset?” Deciding between the two primarily hinges on factors such as quantity, turnaround time, and specific project needs. We guide our clients through this process whenever you ask for a quote or place an order.
1. Quantity Matters:
Generally speaking, for orders exceeding 500 copies, offset printing tends to be more cost-effective. However, this is a generalized guideline, and exceptions can arise based on other influencing factors.
2. Speed is Key:
If you’re racing against the clock and require a quick turnaround – perhaps within the same day or the next – digital printing holds the advantage. The absence of plate making and a faster press setup make digital printing a quicker option.
3. Quality & Precision:
Both digital and offset printing have their advantages. While digital is faster as far as set up, offset can provide savings per print, especially for large-volume orders.
4. Tailored Recommendations:
At Digital Arts, we pride ourselves on offering both digital and offset printing. When you approach us with a project, we take the time to understand your specific needs. By analyzing the specifics of your order and understanding your preferences, we recommend the most suitable printing method to ensure optimal results.
In conclusion, whether you choose digital or offset depends on the unique demands of your project. Trust that Digital Arts will provide expert guidance every step of the way to guarantee the best printing solution for your order.
