Offset printing vs. digital printing: a comparison of two technologies
The advent of the printing technology, now applied on metal surface such as closures, requires us to briefly examine the difference between traditional offset printing and modern digital printing in this sector:
- Offset printing
It requires the preparation of a metal plate, where the images used during printing is reproduced. The use of a matrix and long set-up activities for each printing, makes it a valuable method only for companies that require big quantities, and uses a scale logic to make efficiency
- Digital printing
It does not require the use of a matrix. Instead, the image is digitally processed, allowing you to change the printed image while the work is in progress, ensuring speed and extreme customization.
With the technology patented by Pelliconi, both printing methods qualitatively guarantee excellent results, so your choice will only be based on production reasons. The technology behind each system makes them suitable for diverse projects and businesses, especially in terms of quantities required and incurred costs.
With this in mind, digital printing, although it can also be used for large-scale production, is a service that lends itself perfectly to the request for small batches since it has a more flexible production process.
There are also differences concerning the customization possibilities: the digital printing technology allows you to choose various shades of color - with no limits to how many colors you have on your graphic -, supporting any customization requirement.
Companies can now express their value and brand identity through an abundance of colors and shades, transforming packaging into a real marketing lever.
The innate tendency to innovate and the desire to respond to modern market needs have prompted Pelliconi to develop a digital printing technology applicable to 26 mm and 29 mm metal crown caps and introduce a new customization opportunity.
