Digital printing is referred to as Non Impact Printing (NIP) because no printing plates are needed to apply the ink. As a result a different page can be printed with every impression.
Digital printing is divided into electrophotographic (using toner) and inkjet methods. In addition to the familiar areas of use, such as posters, job work and office applications, digital printing use is seeing a considerable increase in the graphic arts. In fact, digital printing has emerged as the fifth main print method.
In the printing industry, digital printing is almost exclusively used for producing proofs in connection with colour management, to create the reference artwork for the production printing to follow. But digitally produced print-outs also serve to check the print image before production.
The clear advantages of digital printing, such as tiny print runs, small series production, flexibility and alterations during printing, conformation to corporate design standards, speed, personalised printing and variety of substrates, have revolutionised its meaning for packaging printing. New systems mean print on demand can be used, for packaging printing, for short runs or promotional campaigns. With our partner network, we enable customers to test out new creations on the market at the design stage, with a short print run, and with complete flexibility for changes to the product design.
