Whats better digital printing or litho printing?
Litho printing uses wet ink and plates, it requires some set up time to create and set up the plates, but once they are the printing time is quick. This lends itself to high volume as the setup cost is then counterbalanced.
Digital printing uses toners on a press much like an office printer but scaled up. With no set up time required printing can start imminently, digital printing is cost effective for short and medium runs. Or those looking for personalisation or variable text and/or images in their artwork. With digital printing same day or even next day service is possible due to its set up and run time.
It's not really the question of what type of printing is better but what type of printing is better for the job at hand. We will be able to offer expert advise as to which would be the most effective for you.
How to setup artwork for print?
Setting up artwork for print for the first time may seem a little daunting but here are our tips on getting up your artwork.
When creating your document your software will ask you to choose your document size, this is the size of your final product. Please see our print specifications to find your document sizes of your desired print marketing item.
Margins determine the safe space within your document size. Typically these should not contain any important text or information, it is fine for images to be in the margin. Typically in most cases we will ask for 3mm margins, this ensures when trimming your document no important information will ever be cut off accidentally. Exact margin requirements for certain direct mail and door to door items can be found on our print specifications page.
Bleed in a document is typically 3mm over your document size. It is ideal for images to extend into this area to ensure no white areas when your artwork is trimmed to size.
Crop marks are small markers on the artwork which indicates to our print and production team where items should be trimmed to. This is normally an option when saving and exporting your artwork.
Images ideally should be 300dpi which means they are high quality with 300 dots per inch. This can be checked on most artwork software. It is also important to convert RGB images to CYMK before placing them in the artwork. This will help ensure there are no colour discrepancies when printed. Lastly when using logos it is good practice to use logos that are vector based.
We would recommend a 12pt font size for most designs. 6pt being the smallest font, any smaller and it won’t be legible when printed. With fonts please embed or outline them. Or if sending an InDesign File please supply the font files too.
