DIGITAL PRINTING

Digital presses use powdered toner instead of traditional inks and with the digital printing process, your artwork goes straight from your pdf to print. Early digital presses couldn’t compete with the quality produced by full-colour printing. However, huge technological advances in the last couple of decades have resulted in digital print that’s impossible to tell apart from litho. Because there’s no setup cost or minimum quantity, digital printing is also perfect for smaller amounts (whether it’s nine or 900) and when you need customized or personalized marketing.

OFFSET PRINTING

With offset or “litho” printing the image (your artwork) is transferred to metal plates and then from the plates to a rubber blanket. Then the inked blankets transfer the image onto paper. The process is called offset because the ink is first transferred from plate to blanket rather than going directly on to the paper. Because of the time and costs required for set up, plates and ink before anything is actually printed, offset isn’t cost effective for smaller amounts and is usually only used when very large volumes are required.

SCREEN PRINTING

Screen printing as we know it has been around since the early 20th century and is used for printing fabrics, wood, glass, signage etc. The image is transferred to a fine mesh and areas to be left blank are covered with a substrate. The printing process involves pushing ink through the openings in the mesh onto the end material.

SUBLIMATION

Sublimation printing also referred to as dye sublimation printing for transferring images usually a cloth material such as polyester can only be used on 100% polyester apparel or materials with a special polymer coating. Sublimation inks used are transparent for printing high quality images onto various fabrics and items displaying absolutely no resolution loss when compared to the original image. With an image as clear as the source, a product made using the sublimation process will sustain its quality throughout the years. This printing method is best used on products such as polyester apparel in white or light colours or hard surfaces with a polymer coating such as coasters, mugs, mouse pads, travel mug, water sipper and badges.
