There are fundamental differences between offset and digital formats, but for the record digital print is green and a good choice for those who want to produce short run work.
As a business we embrace and manufacture both formats but here are a few reasons why digital print is green and eco advantaged. There are no:
- Press cleaning chemicals
- Isopropyl alcohol in fountain solutions
- Aluminum plates and platemaking chemistry
- Proofing materials
- Make ready paper waste
Some digital presses use 100% non-toxic toner, such as the Kodak NexPress. It is certified by INGEDE (International Association of the De-inking Industry) because it is easily de-inked in the paper recycling process, unlike other high profile machines. You can:
Use the same sustainable paper options as offset
including third-party certifications such as Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
Customise and personalise digital print
allowing for more targeted and sophisticated messages, yielding higher response rates, and ultimately higher returns with fewer printed pieces.
Print ‘just in time’
making it generally more cost effective.
Print small quantities
resulting in less waste.
