The Benefits of Digital Printing


digital labelsMost of our custom labels are produced on flexographic presses. However, there are several cases when digital printing is a much cheaper alternative. Digital printing avoids plate charges and has a much quicker setup for a short to medium run of labels. It also allows for variable text and imagery and has a very high quality output. You would want to choose digital when you have a need for several variations of the same label, need process color, or do not have high enough quantities to afford printing plates. The price per label is often higher with digital, but for smaller quantities it is worth the savings on the plate charges. For example, if you have a product that needs several variations of labels, such as a beauty supply product, a food, or a beverage, using digital printing would be much cheaper than having plates made for each different label. Digital printing would also be best for parking tags, discount labels, static clings or any retail labels that either have variations or need to have a very high quality image. Contact us for more information on our digital printing.
