What is Digital Printing?
Digital printing is the process of printing digital images directly onto corrugated substrate, using a single pass, direct-to-corrugate technique. By switching to a Digital Press you can utilize the latest marketing techniques that have previously been out of reach to brands.
The future is digital, don’t miss the boat.
Instead of needing to pay for or create printing plates, digital printing allows you to upload files directly to the press and print.
This simplifies the process, and opens up numerous marketing and design possibilities!

Digital Printing vs. Offset Printing
Traditional printing methods like Offset Printing have been the status quo for some time, and one of the biggest reasons was at large volume, it wins on cost.
But that’s if you plan to use a single design for all of your packaging – those days are over.
Offset Printing needs the time and money to create a Printing Plate, while Digital Printing allows you to simply upload an art file (as many as you want) to the Press.
But if you have product size or style variations, that means you need a new printing plate for each one – and those costs will skyrocket!
Digital allows you to change as many times as you want today, tomorrow, and forever. You’ll never be stuck with a single design ever again.

- Unique product designs
- Seasonal + Promotional messaging
- Cost-effective productions
- Faster turnarounds
Offset Printing Advantages

Digital Printing Means Personalization
In today’s ever changing market, customers are looking for more personalized experience. That means all brands need to change their approach ASAP.
Consumers have an appetite for brands to create this personal experience for them when they purchase their products – and digital allows you to do this.
Most brands today are underutilizing print personalization because they’re simply not aware of the potential benefits of the practice – and that Digital Printing is the avenue to get there.

Speed To Market
Are there sudden changes in the market? Always. Now imagine if you could change your packaging design with a new print design by the end of the day?
Digital allows you to print at the speed of thought. No matter what’s going on in the marketplace, you can adjust your messaging and design and be the first to pounce on a new idea.Single Pass Direct-To-Corrugate
Based on “Single-Pass” technology and inkjet printheads, our printers can directly print digital images with a single pass, without contact, on multiple foil types and weights.
That means one print station, not a station for each color pass! That’s a faster and cheaper production.
4 Simultaneous Print Queues
While our largest printer allows you to print Super-Wide designs, you can also divide the printing area up and 4 simultaneous print queues. That means you can upload 4 unique art files and have them print at the same time, and change the work on the fly.
No other printing technique allows you to do this!
The Jetmasters print with UV inks, which dries quickly and can print on paper of low quality and/or weight, such as test liner or recycled paper, obtaining an excellent printing quality.
By optimizing the size of the drop and the processing of the image, we obtain printing results with a wide chromatic range but using the minimum amount of ink.
The fact there is no direct contact with the substrate means the printing is of higher quality, without pollution or compression; furthermore printing is possible in both directions of the wave.
The exceptional gloss and powerful Chroma of our specialty formulated inks creates images on the Jetmaster that give powerful sensations.
Deeper blacks, shinier colors, and vivid life-like images.
Digital printing inks include cyan, magenta, yellow, and black toner and ink – and extended color gamut inks – orange, blue and green, as well as specialty dry inks.
The UV inks used are more stable and they dry quicker than the water-based inks that are used in industrial flexography, for example.
As UV inks dry instantly, the paper absorbs them less than water-based ones.
- Match your brand colors – exactly
- 6-Color Extended Gamut
- Brighter Colors
- No print variance
- Superior gloss grade
That means high-resolution printing with less ink.
