Over the years, digital printing has made its way into the printing world because of its quality that has constantly improved since its inception and, above all, because of its process speed.
For us, digital printing means very fast delivery times and quality similar to traditional offset printing.
Thanks to digital technology, it is possible to carry out suitable processes, for example, for printing books, company brochures, packaging, magazine printing, invitation printing and many other essential elements for communicating and disseminating culture.
Our technicians are able to quickly produce both small and large prints.
“Same-day” delivery has made this type of product one of the most suitable in solving urgent situations without losing the effectiveness of a quality print.
The customer’s needs dictate the choice of this printing method over another of our specialisations. Although digital printing seems advantageous in any case, in reality many companies still prefer traditional offset printing.
Tradition and innovation converge perfectly in the modern concept of offset printing.
The birth of this method dates back to 1875. Robert Barclay is attributed as the founder, but it was only thanks to Ira Washington Rubel that offset printing was applied to paper in 1904.
The difference between offset and digital printing lies in the indirect process of offset printing, while the digital printing r involves direct application on the surface. Printing an image is defined as indirect when it is printed on a substrate after an articulated passage through a roller system.
Offset printing, as well as being indirect, is also a planographic process in which flat surfaces with images and contrasts placed on one level are used.
This method guarantees extreme definition even on materials that are not perfectly regular.
With this, you can produce products of all sizes that maintain the quality of the print over time. Especially for this latter reason,offset printing is still widely used today for books, magazines and catalogues.
Traditional offset printing is the product that has made the Faenza Group one of the most famous and appreciated companies both nationally and throughout Europe. The possibility of customisation is the feature most appreciated by customers with specific requirements.
Traditional printing gives the concrete possibility of enriching our customers’ commercial offers because it highlights creativity and beauty by creating products with refined and valuable finishes like:
- Glossy and matte varnishes
- Paperback, milled and hardback bound covers
These are just some of the technical details that, together with the selection of excellent materials, can make each printed product an expression of the message that the Faenza Group’s customer wants to send to its target audience.
It is a type of creation that faithfully reproduces the quality of historical manuscripts, such as 15th century Bibles or medieval scribe manuscripts.
This particular sector of printing is characterised by a deep initial research, a careful analysis of the originals and extreme care paid to the final product that is made.
Creating a new product in high circulation without losing even an ounce of the charm of the original manuscript is a peculiarity that today we are able to make available for any type of book.
A beautiful book with an ancient flavour, but created with modern techniques, is an object of great aesthetic and cultural value.
