Digital printing

Looking for an easy and cheap way to print books in small runs? Then digital printing is the solution. With our modern techniques, you can print exactly the number of books you need, without high start-up costs. Choose fast and affordable digital printing at Tipoprint!

What is digital printing?

Digital printing is a modern printing technique that is especially suitable for small print runs, think less than 300 pieces. With this technique, your file goes directly to the printing press, without the need for printing plates. This is different from offset printing, where we do use pressure plates. This makes the start-up costs for digital printing much lower.

Previously, the quality of digital printing was noticeably inferior to offset printing. Today, however, thanks to the introduction of advanced technologies in modern digital printing machines, there is no difference in quality between the two printing methods.

What is the difference between offset and digital printing?

Considering having your own books printed? Then you will undoubtedly come across the terms ‘digital printing’ and ‘offset printing’. We are happy to explain what these terms mean.

Offset printing is a traditional printing technique in which ink is transferred from a printing plate to the paper via a rubber blanket. The start-up costs are on the high side, but the more books you have printed, the lower the price per book becomes. This technique is therefore especially suitable for large runs of 300 pieces or more.

On the other hand, we havedigital printing, a more modern technique in which a digital file is sent directly to the printer. This is similar to how an office printer works, but much larger and more powerful. The great advantage of this technique is that it does not require traditional printing plates. That makes it a lot more affordable if you need small runs.

Yet there is also a downside to digital printing: the price per book does not drop quickly if you have more copies printed. Whether you order 50 or 1,000 books, the unit price remains roughly the same. Do you need a lot of books? Then offset printingmay be a cheaper choice.
