1. No Printing Plates
Traditional Printing: Silicone printing plates are needed to transfer ink from the press onto the label material. Each job would have its plates for its unique artwork and fingerprinted to the printing press it is running on. Producing custom printing plates results in upfront additional charges for the order.
Digital Printing: Digital printing eliminates the need for printing plates through a servo is driven print engine. A photo-imaging-plate and an electronically charged blanket are used to extract the correct amount of ink that is transferred onto the substrate. Both the P.I.P and the electric blanket is used for multiple jobs before replaced.
How does this benefit you? Eliminating the traditional printing plate reduces the upfront first order charge for printing plates. Now time spent manufacturing printing plates is focused on getting your job on and off the press faster.
