Which is best - Litho or Digital printing?

Whether litho or digital printing, we’ll help you choose the right printing method for your project keeping your budget and timescales on track.

Printing technology has advanced since its invention between 1440 and 1450 but it’s still the best method to get your message or information into the hands of your audience or customer.

The best method, either lithographic printing (shortened to litho) or digital printing, really does depend on a few factors. Digital printing technology is now so good that it is really is difficult to tell the difference to the untrained eye.

However, the general rule of thumb is digital printing is great for shorter runs and Litho for longer runs in terms of speed and cost efficiency, but there are always exceptions!
