Printing methods explained

Posted On April 21, 2017 By Leave your thoughts

AB Print have a large manufacturing warehouse with a wide range of printing equipment. This gives a huge amount of versatility to the service we offer.

Our plant and equipment make us able to produce high quality litho printing, digital printing, screen printing and specialist finish printing.

Our investment in every aspect of printing services gives us a one-stop print shop for across the board printing needs.

With such heavy investment in our equipment means all of our services is done in house. This enables us to ensure the highest of quality through our quality control methods.

Printing styles explained:

Litho Printing
This is the most popular commercial type of printing technology. This works by using a laser to burn an image onto a metal plate which is loaded onto the printing press. The image is then offset onto a rubber blanket so it can be transferred onto the printing surface, i.e paper, or card. Litho Printing is common for high volume requirements.

Digital Printing
This term is used for modern printing methods like laser and ink-jet printing. An image is sent to the printer digitally using files like PDF’s. Digital printing is a cost effective method as it does not require a printing plate. Most offices or institutions use digital printers as they only require a personal computer.

Screen printing
Screen printing uses a mesh to transfer the ink onto the surface. This technique is common for large printing requirements and is the primary technique used in printing on t-shirts.

Print finishing
Print finishing is not exactly a method printing instead a post printing service. This term covers anything that happens to a product after it has seen printed. This like folding, cutting, or adding any extra effects.

Top reasons why print media is so important

Posted On April 7, 2017 By Leave your thoughts

Whilst we are living in an increasingly digital world, print media still has great importance, especially when it comes to marketing your brand. It offers a very different experience when compared to online sources and is important for the following reasons:

It conveys credibility

Printed material offers a sense of legitimacy that online marketing methods cannot. It shows that time and effort have gone in to designing and producing your material in print form. Whether it be a product brochure or an annual report, it provides something that can be referred to easily at any time.

It has tangibility

Print media can come in many different forms including flyers, leaflets, booklets and posters. What all these different pieces have in common is that they are physical objects, covered in your business’ branding, that can be picked up and put down, read and reread, many different times. They are a constant reminder of your brand and what it can offer to its target market.

It is more likely to hold interest

As well as being more attractive in physical form, print media also has the benefit of engaging readers more. Web pages are notorious for only generating short spells of interest, with users spending as few as 15 seconds on a page before viewing another site. In contrast, printed material can hold interest for longer as well as be revisited at a later date.

It allows you to target your chosen audience

It is important that your marketing efforts are directed at your target market. This means choosing outlets depending on their demographics, interests and needs. This can be done strategically with print media by selecting publications and channels which are suited to them and thus helps focus your marketing efforts towards those most likely to respond positively to your brand proposition.
