Digital Printing is a more modern technique that allows digital files to be printed by a laser or ink-jet printer onto various packaging substrates, including plastic bags, gift card boxes, labels, and gift cards.
All images or artwork is created digitally through programs such as Illustrator. The images are created using templates for the specific product being printed. A digital laser or ink-jet printer then prints the digital file onto the plastic bag, ribbon, label, or other substrate.
Can print many colors with very tight registration. No plates required.
Not available in short-run for all substrates, like paper bags.
