Offset printing and digital printing are two primary methods used for producing printed materials, each with its own characteristics:

Printing Process:

  • Offset printing transfers ink from a plate onto a printing surface via a series of rollers
  • Digital printing directly applies digital files onto the printing surface using toner or liquid ink

Setup Time and Cost:

  • Offset printing requires longer setup time and higher initial costs due to plate creation and press setup
  • Digital printing has minimal setup time and lower initial costs since it doesn’t require plates

Quality and Customisation:

  • Offset printing often provides higher quality and colour consistency
  • Digital printing offers good quality and is better suited for customisation and variable data printing

Turnaround Time:

  • Offset printing typically has a longer turnaround time due to setup and drying time
  • Digital printing offers quick turnaround times, suitable for tight deadlines
