Why Digital Printing?
Digital print means affordable short-run printing. This allows us to print from small to medium quantities, quickly, cost-effectively and always at offset quality. This can eliminate the need for customers to carry large stocks of print material, and it also ensures your company information is kept up-to-date. The sheer efficiency of the digital process also means most jobs can be “turned-around” very quickly . . . usually within 24-48 hours. Digital makes it very easy for you to update your artwork each time you go to print, thus ensuring your marketplace message is always kept current and fresh!
HP Indigo Press 5000
At Ocean Digital Printing, over the last decade, we have stayed at the forefront of digital printing, with the HP Indigo. This is the latest technology in the electronic offset 4 colour printing process, that combines high-performance digital imaging, with a liquid instant drying ink, which allows us the flexibility of quick turnaround from 50 to 1000 A3 sheets with the top-end quality of offset printing. Without the use of water dampers this gives us a better environmental printing process – which is ideal for all of us. Unlike conventional offset printing, this method is from computer to press, creating a different image with each revolution of the printing blanket – without the use of film separations and metal plates. This allows us to print in collated form for book work and variable data with one pass through the press, and printed on both sides of the paper. We can also print variable data – eg. barcodes, names, addresses and even photo images from an Excel file.
