Offset vs Digital Printing Services

So, you’ve chosen Bertec Graphix for your printing services, but you don’t know the difference between offset and digital printing. We’re going to give you the pros and cons of each method, and hopefully, guide you in making the right choice for your print job. Here are a few points to consider when deciding if you should choose digital or offset printing services.

What is Offset Printing?

Offset printing is a traditional method of printing that uses etched metal plates. Each print job requires a custom plate, one plate per colour. It is because of this intricate and timely process that offset printing is better suited for larger volumes (think copies, not sheets). Essentially, this means the more you print, the more you save.

This customized method of printing isn’t limited to paper size or texture. At Bertec, we offer a wide selection of paper types in varying finishes. Special inks such as metallic and Pantone colours are also available to produce vibrant, high-quality prints.

What is Digital Printing?

Pressed for time? Digital printing is on demand printing when you need it. Because it is toner based, this method requires very little set up beyond basic preparation which allows for a faster turnaround. The minimal setup time makes digital printing services the most cost efficient option for shorter runs. Digital printing also has no minimum print requirement, so whether you want 5 or 500, digital is the way to go.

Whether you choose Bertec Graphix for our digital printing services or our offset printing services, you can be sure that we’ll provide the best solution to meet your needs. We are committed to ensuring you get the Quality, Value, and Service you deserve!
