Inkjet and xerographic digital printers can print on everything from thick cardstock, heavyweight papers and folding cartons to fabric, plastics and synthetic substrates. Inkjet printers use their ink heads to apply small droplets of ink onto your media of choice. Whereas, xerographic printers work by transferring toners (a form of polymer powder) onto your substrates. Your print file is received by a Raster Image Processor (RIP) then sent to the printer of choice in preparation for the high-quality print. Digital printing can produce a near-photographic image on the chosen substrate.

Digital printing and offset printing have their own set of advantages that may coincide better with your print job depending on your specific requirements. Our team of printing professionals at Kingswood understand the in-depth importance of choosing the right printing style and guarantee to provide you with the best advice for every job. When you need larger runs of a project (hundreds or thousands of prints), or are using a specific, brand-centric Pantone colour, offset printing is our recommended style.
Offset printing is a technique where the image is transferred – or offset – from a plate to a rubber blanket, then onto the printing surface. This multi-step process uses etched metal plates, water-repellant (e.g. oil-based) inks, water, blanket cylinders, and impression cylinders to adhere ink, throughout the print job. Here at Kingswood, we have the capabilities to produce quality print runs in varying sizes (from business cards to banners) Akiyama presses.
Digital printing offers a far less complex printing process which doesn’t involve the mechanical elements and set-up processes which offset printing does. Offset printing is more of a manual printing style that incorporates making films, colour proofs and plates which is significantly more time-consuming.
Digital printing jobs are more on-demand and can be turned around in a faster manner for customers. The set-up costs for digital printing are lower which is ideal economically for smaller print runs. Due to the nature of digital printing, there is less waste and fewer variations in job outcomes as you do not have to balance ink and water during the printing process. If you have a job that requires variable data customization (such as direct marketing, letters, or invitations) the advanced digital printing process at Kingswood allows you to change out texts, graphics or numbers seamlessly without interrupting the printing process. Also, if you need a quick and inexpensive black and white printing job – digital printing is the ideal choice.
Offset printing is ideal for printing large quantities in a cost-effective way, as the more you print, the cheaper the price per piece becomes. With offset printing, you are not restricted to a particular paper as offset printing can be successfully executed on a large variety of paper types with the options of additional custom finishes. Despite the advanced technology of modern digital printing, offset printing is still the industry leader in printing style for high volume jobs, due to the advanced production rate and lower price point. With off printing, you get the highest possible printing quality with greater detail and colour fidelity. You also have the ability to use specialty custom inks such as metallic colours and Pantone colours for added creative effect.
Use the following checklist to ensure you make the right printing style choice for your upcoming job.
Quantity: How many are you looking to print? If your quantity is low, it’s simple, opt for digital printing as there are less set-up costs and lower minimum quantities, therefore this will be a far cheaper option. If your quantity is high, it may be best to opt for offset printing because the printing unit cost will decrease as your quantity increases, which will be more economical for larger runs.
Printing medium: If you’re looking to print on an unusual surface, utilise custom paper/finishes or your job doesn’t fall within the standard printing sizes, offset printing still offers the most job flexibility despite the technological advances of digital printing.
Colour: With offset printing, the job price increases with every new color. If you are utilising one or two colours only, offset printing may be the most cost-effective way to get your job done. Also, offset printing uses the Pantone Matching System which means if your print incorporates Pantone colours, this will provide the most accurate match as a digital printer simulates the colour and therefore may be less accurate. If you need four-colour process printing, (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) digital may be more economical for your job as this may mean lower up-front printing costs.
Turnaround time: Digital printing provides the fastest turnaround, as this is an on-demand process which does not require the set-up and manual labour involved in executing offset print jobs.
Proofing: The most cost-effective printing style to utilise if you require an accurate proof or sample of your print job is digital printing as producing offset printing samples is far more expensive.
Customisation: If you are utilising variable data throughout your printing project, digital printing is undoubtedly the most cost-effective. If you want to swap out names, addresses and codes etc. when offset printing, this would be very time consuming and disruptive to the process which would result in higher pricing.
