Digital & Litho Printing

Digital Printing:

A fairly recent and growing printing process, digital printing involves the transfer of full colour text and graphics directly from a computer file to paper or card, using laser imaging technology and dry toner ink. As the costs for set-up are low it’s the ideal way to print jobs where you only need small quantities. Prints that come straight out of a digital press are also dry to the touch, requiring little time for finishing. This means we can print smaller orders at prices you’ll love and a lot faster than ever before! Digital printing is also a better on the environment, using little energy and creating minimal waste during production.

Lithographic Printing:

The most commonly used and standard method of printing, litho or “off-set” printing has been around for many years. Offering results of the best quality, this process uses wet inks to transfer an image from an etched printing plate (or a series of them) to a rubber blanket set-up on the press. When paper or card is run through the press, the “inked image” is applied to its surface once contact is made with the blanket.

You can produce a multitude of items with lithographic printing. It’s best suited for jobs with medium to long runs / high volumes; the cost per print becomes relatively cheaper on larger quantities. Overall, it delivers consistent high image quality and should be considered when only the best results will do!

Due to the nature of the printing process the minimum lead time to produce an order is 5 working days, and can vary depending on the job requirement and print schedules. We recommend that you take this into consideration before placing your order to allow for your own deadlines.

Our most popular applications for lithographic printing include:

  • Business cards printed on 400gsm thick card
  • Multi-part carbonless (NCR) forms, such as invoices, receipts, forms or internal/office-use, etc.
  • Letterhead and envelope printing
  • Items such as corporate folders, invitations and wedding stationery with special requirements, such as printing metallic inks and applying foiling effects
  • Printing bespoke products on a wide range of papers and card with different textures and finishes
