Digital printing is generally used when only a short run of items is required. It usually has a higher cost per page than litho printing, however, this price is usually offset by avoiding the cost of all the technical steps required to make printing plates, so the costs for short run prints is lower and turnaround time is more likely to be quicker.
Although digital print today is of a very high quality, the image quality of litho print will always be slightly superior. Due to the initial set up required for litho printing, it is only a cost effective print solution for runs of around 500 upwards. The cost per unit reduces significantly the longer the print run.
