Digital and Offset Printing – Which is Better?

DW Blog
April 30th, 2019

You must have heard of the terms digital and offset printing, but don’t know which type is best suited for your requirements! Rest assured, this is a common dilemma faced by many, as they don’t have a clearer insight regarding the differences of the two techniques.

What is Offset Printing?

Plates made of aluminum are used to transfer an image onto a rubber blanket, which is then rolled onto a sheet of paper. The ink isn’t transferred directly, but color reproduction is excellent. Offset presses can run competently once they are set up, so more quantities can be printed if needed.

  • Printing in large quantities is much more cost-effective – in fact, the more you print, the lower is the “price per piece”.
  • You can use several paper types, along with custom finishes of your choice.
  • If you want to include special custom inks such as metallic and Pantone colors, that is possible too.
  • Crisp color fidelity, while detailing is fantastic – this is premium quality printing with a clean, professional look.

What is Digital Printing?

This method doesn’t involve plates, but uses toner or liquid ink. This option works well when lower quantities are needed – say, 25 greeting cards or 120 pamphlets.  It has variable data capability, so when each piece needs a unique code, name or address, digital is the best option. Unfortunately, offset printing can’t be tweaked to perform this functionality.

  • Installation costs are lower for short runs.
  • You can print only the amount as and when needed.
  • Minimum quantities are actually lower.
  • Black and white digital printing costs less.
  • Data capability is variable.
  • The quality is exceptional due to the advent of cutting-edge technology.

Which type of printing is best for your project?

Both methods are great, but the requirements have to be taken into account. For instance, if you need higher volume printing that goes up to hundreds or thousands, or you have to use specific, brand-centric Pantone color, it is best to go for offset printing that is economical at 1000+ identical copies. As mentioned, specialty ink and custom papers can be utilized too. If you need short run printing of less than 100 or up to 500 copies (begins at one single copy), or individual addresses or information, then digital is a more lucrative solution.

If you are confused about which printing method to choose, please go ahead and seek professional advice.


Web Designer and Web Developer – What is the Difference?

Even though the term web designer and developer are used interchangeably, because both assist in building websites, their areas of involvement are different. Developers focus on code structure using complex languages, while designers concentrate on structuring the site in a more visually creative manner.

What is a web designer?
To put it in a nutshell, the job of web designers is to make the site look interesting to users via compelling images, videos, animation, etc. Code like HTML and CSS are used to create designs. There are various types of designers:
laptop-designer-table• User Experience (UX) – Using research into user’s demographics and website needs, along with prototype testing and site restructuring, these designers keep visitors engaged.
• User Interface (UI) – They work on improving how users interact with website interface. They make the site more enjoyable and convenient to navigate.
• Visual – This is a blend of UX and UI creative and coding skills are used, while design issues are resolved as well. They define the uniqueness of a brand.

What is web developer?

A web developer works on the framework of a website by using software like Javascript and JQuery – it is just like building a foundation. There are categories of developers such as:
• Back-end – It involves designing core structure with complex software languages like Java, SQL and C#. Coding is done on web servers and databases, not on the browser. Bugs are fixed by them as well.
• Front-end – These designers use HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for client-side development. They work on things the user can see like client lead forms.
• Full stack – They are involved across multiple stacks including both front and back end. Their expertise includes all areas of web development.

Do you need a web designer or a web developer?

The answer depends on what kind of website related work you have to get done. For instance, designing a new homepage layout or editing videos and photos is the job of a web designer, while building new contract forms or creating mobile apps is when you require web developers.
But if you are creating a website from ground zero, you need to hire a designer and developer. The latter creates a solid platform for further growth in future, while the former makes it more aesthetically appealing for users so they visit the website and spend significant time on it. It is advisable to approach an agency that offers services of both designers and developers.
