What is Digital Printing?
Digital Printing is the fastest growing sector in the print industry due to its recent technological advances. Digital printing avoids the costs of all the technical steps required to produce press plates. It is most effective for smaller quantity runs and last minute jobs that require quick turnaround times.
Digital Printing allows for on-demand printing, short turnaround time, and even a modification of the text/ image (know as variable data) used for each impression. The savings in labor and the ever-increasing capability of digital presses mean that digital printing rival’s offset printing’s ability to produce larger print runs of several thousand sheets at a low price.
How it Works?
The industry leading toner based technology found in our brand new Konica-Minolta digital presses use no fuser oil, giving all your applications a smooth, offset-like finish.
Advanced Konica-Minolta color management technology, with closed-loop process controls, enables vivid, consistent color rendition from page to page and job to job every single time.
Because our digital presses always print at high-resolution standards, they deliver amazing mid-tones, crisp text, pure neutrals, detailed shadows, bright highlights and excellent photo rendering, resulting in an outstanding image quality.

Digital Printing versus Traditional Offset Printing
The greatest difference between digital printing and traditional offset printing is that there is no need to replace printing plates in digital printing. Digital Printing is an ideal solution for small to medium sized print runs that require quick turnaround times; offset printing is better suited for high-volume print runs. Another key difference is Digital Printing’s variable data capability. If each piece requires a unique image, code, name or address, digital printing is the route to go.
