It isn’t a case of one method being yesterday’s technology and the future being exclusively digital.

What Digital Label Printing Equipment Should I Invest In For My Business?

Posted by David Lee on Dec 18, 2017 10:23:09 AM

The label printing industry has been dominated by flexographic print technologies for the best part of a century. This remains true, more or less, for high volume print runs. For short runs and flexible orders, however, the ongoing trend is towards the adoption of digital technology. This gives operators far more control over print outcomes and cuts back on the amount of labour and training required to operate presses. The persistent downside of digital printing is the high cost per unit, which rules it out for large volume print runs. This snapshot of the label printing industry is, of course, extremely generalised.

What Questions Should I Ask A Digital Label Printing Equipment Supplier?

Posted by David Lee on Oct 20, 2016 11:30:00 AM

On several levels digital printing cannot be compared directly with conventional printing systems. In fact each of the systems discussed can have a defined appearance compared to analogue printing. This is no different to comparing the subtle differences in gravure, flexographic & lithographic printing. The digital option will have different rules relating to costs & price pressures and anyone expecting this new technology to replace their existing analogue equipment with a simple press of a button will be disappointed. Digital printing requires a lot of advance preparation in the presented files, the saying rubbish in, rubbish out is absolutely true in this case. In asking the right questions & preparing trials you can manage expectations and make the right choice for your market.
