With digital printing, there are a lot of advantages. Since the setup is easier/cheaper, there is less waste, and lower labor costs, the prices for short-run (under 1,000) are lower. All of this is because there is no make ready when using a digital press, meaning there are no plates used. Instead, the PDF files are sent directly to the press. Without the elaborate set-up process, you get a quicker turnaround and a lower cost for quantities 10 – 1,000.The ease of short-run digital printing is, as we mentioned earlier, excellent for keeping marketing materials fresh and up-to-date without breaking the bank or turning your office into a storage shed.

GREEN PRINTING NEED IT FAST? SHORT RUN DIGITAL BOOK PRINTING MAY BE YOUR BEST OPTIONWhen saddle-stitched books and calendars are printed digitally or offset, they go directly to our Horizon Booklet Maker, and are collated, folded, saddle-stitched, shrink wrapped and are ready to ship. For Wire-O, Spiral, and Perfect Bound books, digital printing allows you to collate one at a time (or different versions), one right after the other in order, almost immediately. Once they come off the digital press, it only needs to be trimmed and bound and it’s ready to ship!DISADVANTAGES OF DIGITAL PRINTING

  • It’s more expensive than offset printing on larger runs over 1,000 sheets or booklets.
  • Digital printing costs remain the same for all run lengths.
  • Limited size: Most digital equipment is maxed out on an image size of 13×19.
  • Digital printing is still slightly more receptive to be scratched and scuffed.

 ADVANTAGES OF BULK OFFSET PRINTINGWhen you print 500 to 20,000 or more sheets or booklets, the cost is lower than with digital printing. This is because once you pay for the setup and make ready, the press runs much faster, and costs much less per sheet. Offset printing also offers a higher rub resistance, meaning the risk of your product getting scuffed or scratched is much lower.


  • Longer make ready and set up times.
  • Printing plates need to be made
  • More maintenance required
  • Solvents and inks aren’t as green as with digital printing
  • Produces more waste
  • Longer dry time- On a lot of substrates it may take a longer period of time to have the ink dry or cure.  Sometimes this can take a day or longer.  When this happens, your project takes longer to complete.


  • Less chemical and paper waste
  • More environmentally friendly; low waste and is more efficient
  • No need for aluminum plates
  • There are no wasted sheets in set up
  • Print what you need, when you need it, affordably.
  • Take Less risk – Test your message before you launch any expensive campaigns.
  • Spend less up front -You don’t have to order a years’ supply of booklets in order to save some money and you can turn your inventory faster.
  • Print only what you need for an event, and have it shipped directly to that event.
