We answer your top 5 digital printing FAQS

Hey 👋 Stop Googling! If you’re still confused, don’t worry, just read our FAQs. We’re too excited NOT to share!

Well you can print full colour, get a quick delivery, it’s low cost and high quality (better value for short run volumes) and it’s environmentally friendly too! So if you need a single bound booklet printing next day, no problem. If you want short print runs, with a fast turnaround, you’ll find traditional litho printing is less flexible, much more expensive and takes far too long. By contrast digital prints are cheaper and fast as the costs of each page impression is very low compared to litho print.

No, digital printing is very low cost compared to other types of printing. Keep in mind there are fewer risks with digital printing. If you spot a printing error, it can be fixed instantly. Take into account, most London digital print centres charge per page. Western Printers customers should note there is a £2.50 minimum charge for digital printing.

Good question, first you need to have your content ready; any text, photos, logos or any special fonts you plan to print. Whether that’s Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, PDF or just plain hard copy. Carefully check page margins and proof read it to find any spelling errors. After you’ve made all the revisions, you’re ready to start the process.

Next, choose a file format for your artwork. Call us to discuss the best format for saving a print file like a PDF for example, which is usually the best format you can use to print your artwork.

Choose CMYK colour separation which is perfect for printing. The CMYK separation adds dye to a page to subtract white from an image. Remember that when viewing colour on a computer screen, it is not always the same when printed. The CMYK model allows the colour we see on the screen to be the one we are going to see when printing is finished.
