It can be overwhelming to think of having to get large quantities of high-quality printed materials for an event or business. This is where digital printing services become very handy. However, if this is your first time engaging a printing partner, it can be hard to know what to expect. To help you with the process, we have created an easy guide to making the most of digital printing services.
What Are Digital Printing Services?
There are many different types of printing methods, like letterpress printing and screen printing. These can be labor-intensive and time-consuming. For many consumers, digital printing was a game-changer. Just like how you can print a document at home, digital printing is able to convert your digital files into hard copies without having to create printing plates. This means that not only is it more environmentally friendly, but there’s less turnaround time.
However, it should be noted that the ink or toner will not seep into the materials chosen, instead, it will be sealed into a thin layer on top with a heating or UV curing process. If you plan to fold your materials, it is important to request a creasing process.
What Kind of Projects Are Suitable for Digital Printing?
As with all forms of production, there is no one size fits all solution. Digital printing would work best with:
- Rack cards/postcards
- Forms and documents
- Variable data printing like personalized sales collateral or mailing labels
Use This Checklist Before You Send Your Project to Print
Before you start printing, may sure you don’t miss any details. We have prepared a checklist for you to run through before confirming with your printing partner:
- Prepare the Right File Type
Different printers will accept different types of files and it is important that you avoid compressing the file.
- Choose a Print Size and Aspect Ratio
It is best to figure out how large you want your print to be and then what aspect ratio would look good.
- Decide on a Paper Type
There are many different options like matte, gloss, and uncoated paper. Make sure to assess each type to get the best choice for your final product.
- Finishing Options
This is something that will not be applicable for everyone, but this is also important to decide on beforehand. Finishing options will include perfect binding, booklet making, stacking, hole punching, and more.
