- Consistent high-quality images. Offset printing produces sharper and cleaner images and type than digital printing.
- The print quality is generally better than in digital printing.
- Works on a wide range of printing surfaces, including paper, wood, cloth, metal, leather, rough paper and plastic.
- Cheaper for high volume printing. The overall price per printed piece drops.
- Wide color gamut. Offset printing can accurately reproduce colors from the Pantone Matching System, while digital methods only simulate Pantone color using four-color printing.
- Cheaper low volume printing. While the unit cost of each piece may be higher than with offset printing, when setup costs are included digital printing provides lower per unit costs for small print runs.
- Faster turnaround time.
- Variable data printing.
- Better for the environment. Digital printing uses dry ink or toner, which doesn’t emit any VOCs in printing. Also, this printing method produces much less paper waste than offset, because the set-up time is shorter.
- More accurate proofing.
We recommend that you use offset printing if:
- Quality is your main concern.
- You require high-volume printing (e.g., more than 250 business cards and 1000 brochures).
- You want to print on paper thicker than 14 pt.
- The size of the finished product is larger then 12″x18″.
We recommend that you use digital printing if:
- You need a short turnaround time (shorter than 5 business days).
- You require low-volume printing (e.g., less than 250 business cards and 1000 brochures).
- You need variable data printing.
If any element on your document layout makes contact with the document border you will have to use bleed. The trick is to place the element so that it goes over the border where the document will be cropped after printing.
The term bleed is used for all objects overlapping the border of your document.
