print·er : (Noun). The art, practice, or business of reproduction in printed (hardcopy) form.
The most common styles of printing we offer are Offset & Digital printing. There are many differences between these two styles, but most commonly the big three determining factors between them are:
1. How quickly do you need your finished piece?
2. What substrate (paper), and/or what size are they printing?
3. How will this fit into the budget for your project?
Don’t worry, our experienced team can help with this choice.
Digital Printing – Professional quality. Faster turnaround time for most projects. Most cost effective for tight budgets.
Offset Printing – Maximum quality. Large paper variety of textures and thickness selection. Most accurate color matching (by using Pantone color books and Ink matching processes if needed).
