Why digital for corrugated?

The world of printing has undergone a dramatic transformation in recent years, with digital technology ushering in new possibilities for efficiency, customization, and quality.

Commercial digital printing, in particular, has emerged as a powerful force in the industry, offering a wealth of advantages over traditional methods like offset lithography, flexography, and screen printing.

Shorter turnaround times

One of the most significant advantages of commercial digital printing is its ability to deliver fast results. Unlike traditional methods that require time-consuming plate setups and alignment, digital printers can start printing almost immediately.

It’s a big advantage if your business requires rapid print production, as it enables you to meet tight deadlines and respond swiftly to market demands.

Cost-effectiveness for short(er) runs

Digital printing is an excellent choice if you require smaller print runs, as it eliminates the need for plates, setup fees, and labor-intensive prepress tasks. This translates to lower costs, especially when compared to offset lithography or flexography.

Superior customization and personalization

A key advantage of commercial digital printing is its capacity for customization and personalization. This, unlike traditional methods, allows businesses to create targeted marketing campaigns and unique promotional items.

Unrivaled print quality

High-resolution digital printers can reproduce sharp text, vibrant colors, and intricate details with ease, ensuring that your printed materials look professional and polished.

Furthermore, digital printing's superior color management and consistency eliminate issues like color variation, a common challenge in traditional printing techniques.

Environmentally friendly

In today's eco-conscious world, businesses are increasingly seeking sustainable solutions for their operations, and commercial digital printing offers an eco-friendly alternative to traditional printing methods.

Digital printers produce less waste, as they don't require plates or chemicals, and they use energy more efficiently.
