Digital printing greatly simplifies complicated prepress processes by eliminating steps such as plate setup and the registration and color adjustment usually required at the start of output. This dynamic format helps to create a streamlined workflow from data submission right through to output, significantly reducing production times.
As digital presses do not require plates, they also have a clear advantage over conventional systems in terms of production costs. This advantage is particularly evident for the volumes of small to medium size jobs.
