Offset/Digital Printing Services in New York

Offset printing technology uses aluminum  plates, which are used to transfer an image onto a rubber "blanket". Then rolling that image onto a sheet of paper. It is called offset because the ink is not transferred directly onto the paper. This type of printing is the best choice when more numbers are needed, and provides the correct color reproduction, and fresh, clean professional looking printing. Offset printing presses also allow you to print larger sheets and can print many pieces quicker than digital printing presses.

Digital printing does not use plates the way offset does, but instead uses options such as toner (like in laser printers) or larger printers that do use the liquid ink. Digital printing shines when lower quantities are needed.  Variable data capability is the another benefit of digital printing. When each piece needs a unique code, name or address, digital is the only way to go. Offset printing cannot accommodate this need.
Advantages of Digital Printing:

•             Setup costs are lower for short runs
•             Print only the amount you need, when you need it
•             Lower minimum quantities
•             Inexpensive black and white digital printing
•             Variable data capability (names, addresses, codes or numbering can be done easily) For example, personalized letters can be printed with a different name and address on each letter. Variable data printing is used primarily for direct marketing, customer relationship development and advertising.
•             Improved technology has made digital quality acceptable for more uses
•             Every prints are the same. More accurate counts, less waste and fewer variations, due to not having to balance ink and water during press run.

Advantages of Offset Printing:

•             Large quantities can be printed cost effectively
•             The more you print, the cheaper the price per piece
•             A large variety of paper types with custom finishes can be used
•             Special custom inks such as metallic and Pantone colors are available
•             Highest possible printing quality, with greater detail and color fidelity
•             High image quality.
•             Works on a wide range of printing surfaces including paper, wood, cloth, metal, leather, rough paper and plastic.
•             The unit cost goes down as the quantity goes up.
•             Quality and cost-effectiveness in high volume jobs. While today’s digital presses are close to the cost/benefit ratio of offset for high quality work, they are not yet able to compete with the volume an offset press can produce.
•             Modern offset presses use computer-to-plate systems as dissimilar to the older computer-to-film work flows, further increasing quality.
