Digital Scanning Houston is a form of printing that uses electronic data in the printing process. It is created using two types of equipment: the Direct Imaging Press (DI) and the Digital Color Printer. The three types of digital printing are on-demand, variable data, and web-to-print. In favour of digital technology, digital printing removes the need of traditional inks. Rather than transmitting the information to a metal plate and subsequently to a rubber blanket, as in typical offset printing, you may print it directly from your pdf/jpg file.


Although both the DI and the Digital Color Printer are used for short-run digital printing, their capabilities and results are vastly different. DI Presses use an offset or traditional printing technology that automatically develops photographs and can be waterless. Toners, dry-ink, or dyes are used to develop the pictures in digital colour printers that use electrophotography, inkjet, or Xerography. Despite the fact that a DI Press generates higher-quality output, digital colour printing is equivalent to offset printing.


Printing on-demand

On-Demand printing, also known as Print-on-Demand (POD), allows for small-scale printing, which is suitable for companies that need to update their printed documents on a regular basis. Unless superior print quality is necessary, On-Demand printing is usually done with a Digital Color Printer, in which case a DI Press can be used. If both quality and time are crucial, a waterless DI Press can be used because the drying time is quite quick.


Printing with Variable Data

VDP (Variable Data Printing), often known as Variable Image Printing, is a type of digital printing that can be altered. Using databases holding specific consumer information, each element of the same postal design is personalised for each recipient. VDP methods are very probably utilised when you get direct mail with your name and/or address personalised in the text, for example. Customers like personalised letters since it is less generic, and databases often include customer preferences and purchase history to speed up contact. VDP digital printing is perfect for communicating the same basic information to a group while also being environmentally friendly.


Web-to-print

Web-to-Print digital printing, also known as Web-Enabled printing, allows direct mail pieces to be edited and personalised online using a print management tool. Clients and customers can also choose photos to use in documents such as brochures. When the item is finished, a proof is presented online, and it is submitted to the printer with a single click. In most cases, the print supplier will have the required number of digital prints in the mail to the customer within one or two working days.


As a result, depending on the demands of the user, many types of digital printing exist. Because technology in this industry is always evolving, you may expect your printing quality to improve over time.
