How to choose between conventional offset and digital printing?

For years the notion that digital printing quality did not compare to offset printing held true.  With the recent advances in digital technology and equipment the playing field has leveled.  The decision now between offset printing and digital printing is based more on application of product and run length.Digital vs. Conventional

For high volume static products conventional offset printing is the most cost effective method of production. Offset also offers the advantage of different types of varnishes, coatings and special inks.

If you are looking for a short run product then digital printing is for you.  With digital printing also comes the advantage of variable data printing. By utilizing variable data printing you can target a specific audience with a message designed just for them. Our Nexpress also offers you the option of glossing your finished piece, giving your job and overall high-gloss finish.
