What is Premium Digital Press?
Digital Press printing on a production Digital Press = Sharper images with a wider and vibrant colour range, smoother mid-tones with greater shadow detail and natural soft skin tones. Truly The Photographers’ Choice in Coffee Table Book printing.
Digital printing has been around for many year in the form of desktop printers. Digital printing allows small print runs with a minimal waiting period, ideal for photo books. Typically the desktop printer can do medium sized print runs where litho printing would be to expensive. Litho printing requires costly setup fees. Litho printing is the process were the desired image goes through 4 different colours where the plates then roll and print the image on paper. Litho printing is most cost effective with long print runs like newspapers, text books etc.
This is were the Digital press steps in. It delivers the quality of Litho with the speed and cost of standard digital printing. As the digital age has grown and resulted in perfecting current industry machines, so has the digital press also evolved. We now have more advanced digital printers with very high quality and faster turnaround times.
