Digital Print Products
Here is a small list of everything we can provide for you in our digital printer:
Difference between Digital Print and offset print
Digital printing hasn’t been around as long as offset. Our printer uses toner (looks like powder) instead of your regular household printer ink. The toner is transferred to a plastic sheet and then the image gets transferred onto paper. Afterwards, heat is used along with fuse oil to set the toner permanently onto the paper. Digital machines reduce set-up time, waste, and cost.
If you were to compare our digital prints to offset, there wouldn’t be too much of a difference since the quality is good on digital. Offset has been around since the 1800s and works by transferring ink onto a plate and this in turn goes onto a rubber sheet which will then be rolled onto paper. Offset is generally regarded as higher quality printing. Larger sheets are available for printing on offset and the process is quicker. Offset is a better option for larger amounts and specialty effects (like Spot UV (shiny areas on a silk card), plastic and foil).

The process is simple, we will design your card including the particular shape you want to print. We then send the design off to the die maker and within 2-3 days we are ready to carve paper into creativity. Once the print portion of your project is ready, our bindery facility will match the die cut and the print job together and your custom cards are ready.
