A guide to different types of printing and their uses

For a long time, printing has been making an important contribution to how the idea is distributed and conveyed. With the development of new methods in printing, today there are so many types of printing that printers and creators can choose from.

Offset Printing

Offset printing in Vaughan is commonly used for printing materials that are needed to be printed in a large quantity, such as brochures, flyers, postcards and packaging boxes. In Offset Printing, an inked image goes through a plate and then onto the paper material. Due to the ability to deliver huge production in a very short time, offset printing is one of the most common types of printing used for commercial large-scale printing.


Flexographic printing is typically a high-speed modern version of the letterpress method of printing. In this method, the material in which it is printed runs a series of flexible rubber plates. Each of these plates is fed with different colored ink with a specialized roller. As the material passes through the plates, it receives different shades and colors, thereby building up the desired image or message onto the material.

Digital Printing

In the digital printing method, the need for preparing plates like in flexographic and that of offset printing is not required and there is no need to go through the setup process.
