digital print management

What is digital printing?
Digital printing is any printing technology (laserjet printer, for instance) that is capable of producing printed materials directly from a computer file. Digital printing eliminates the mechanical steps used in conventional printing and does not require an intermediary medium such as film, or an intermediary machine, such as a plate maker. Digital printing is growing in popularity at the expense of offset printing because last-minute revisions and corrections can be made at minimal cost without requiring much setup. Because it allows a company to print professional quality brochures, personalized direct mail, labels, plastic cards and graphic overlays on an as-needed basis, digital printing is sometimes referred to as "on-demand printing."
