Making the right choiceWritten by Karen Nodalo
If youíre talking about quality printing, digital printing does it all. You will not have second thoughts whether to print it digital way or follow old method. The two types of printing have many differences but in one way or another has their own advantages which both have in common. No matter how we claim digital printing is most trusted and efficient way of printing, we should never take old way of printing for granted. Itís nice that we have options for printing. Some tasks and printing jobs still require old method.
The most advantage of digital printing is that it is less costly than press printing. Press printing requires a lot of processes and equipments and other props.
Digital printing uses newest type of color application and separation which is CMYK. This kind of color separation is printed out in tiny dots and they are diversed into other assorted colors. Press printing uses Pantone Matching System which is called PMS. This kind of color printing is effective and efficient too. These colors are mixed to sort out and match a certain tone of colors.
Proofing is done quickly in digital printing. It saves time and cuts budget because editing and some changes can be easily done in computer and in printer directly. Press printing may not be that expensive but it does not maintain very good accuracy.
