Digital Printing for Short Run or Quick Turnaround Printing

At Minuteman Press, Poole we offer both Traditional Lithographic Printing and Digital Printing and can advise you of the best option for your job - in terms of process suitability and cost.

Digital printing refers to printing from a digital based image directly onto a variety of media. Digital printing has a lower set up cost than traditional lithographic printing methods (as it does not required the technical set up to make printing plates) but generally has a higher charge per page.

It allows for on-demand printing, short turnaround times and even variable data changes on each page. In recent years, due to the advances with this technology, digital printing now provides, in many circumstances, a direct quality comparison to lithographic printing. These days even the professionals have a problem telling the difference!

This printing method is ideal for short run items, quick turnaround or multi-page documents as these jobs are collated at the same time as they are printed.
