Startup businesses often require professional digital printing services to get their business off the ground. Professional digital printing helps a business stand out among the crowd, through high quality logos, banners, posters, brochures, business cards, and various other branding tools.
Businesses that are going through a rebranding phase may also seek out professional digital printers to help them recreate a new company image. They want digital images that will drive their business. But what exactly is digital printing?
Digital Printing Overview
Digital printing transfers an electronic document from a computer directly to a printing device. There are many methods for digital printing, but the most popular methods employ inkjet or laser printers. Digital printers can deposit pigment or toner onto a wide variety of substances, such as paper, photo paper, canvas, glass, or metal.
Unlike traditional offset printing, digital printing does not require the use of printing plates. Offset printing transfers images from an inked image first to a printing plate, then to the final printed surface. Every printing job requires a new plate. With offset printing, it is time consuming to customise individual images.
Offset printing is the most cost effective for producing huge quantities of high quality prints, and is therefore suitable for large corporations with unlimited budgets.

Digital printing has a much faster turnaround time than offset printing. It allows for variable data like stickers with serial numbers to be printed, since customisation can be done electronically instead of needing a new plate to be made.
Address label printing is another example of a custom sticker printing order that can easily be handled by a digital printer. Digital printers excel at printing images with slight variations. Best of all, you don’t need to wait for the ink to dry before picking up your order.
Since an individual digital print job does not require a costly setup, it is possible to print small orders on demand. There are many advantages to digital printing:
- Quick turnaround time for short run and urgent orders
- Allows for customisation of data
- Can print on various materials
- Clear, high definition images
- Small minimum quantities available
- Waterproof and fade resistant inks for outdoor use
- Can print on large sizes, like banners
- Easy to tweak digital images as needed
- Easy to prototype single orders
Digital printing also has a lower cost for short run orders than traditional printing. If you run out of digital printed materials, you can instantly have small quantities reprinted.
