by Denise Klugs Author & Blogger

The process of label printing using digital technology has many advantages over traditional methods. Digital printing produces great quality results at lower costs, plus plenty of other benefits as well. Label printing is has transformed in many ways over the last few decades with the progress made by technology. Methods used for label printing 20 or 25 years back have been replaced by newer methods that produce better quality labels and at a faster rate. Digital label printing is one such method that has proved to be a very convenient and cheap method as compared to traditional label printing methods.

Traditional Printing

The traditional methods of label printing involved the use of large sized mechanical flexography printing presses. Such machines had rubber printing plates which were attached to the presses and the required design was printed on the type of surface chosen for the job.

How Digital Printing Is Better

Digital printing reduces many of the steps involved in traditional printing and makes the overall process a lot simpler. Digital printing provides faster end products, does not require dies or printing plates, high quality finishes and more importantly, more flexibility in the type of design and color combination of the print.

Quicker Delivery

Since there are no lengthy press set ups used, the labels can be printed at a much faster rate. There is little waiting time to get the labels printed. Using traditional methods, producing prints in multiple color combinations can be tough and time consuming, but not in the case of digital printing.


Digital printing relies on less machinery as well as the effort required for making the prints hence the overall cost of printing is also less. This means that the end user has to pay less per print.

No Minimum Order

Digital printing makes it easier to create prints in very low numbers, even one or two, as there is not much that has to be done to set up the process. On the other hand, a lot of work still has to be done in setting up the traditional printing machines even when the number of prints required is few.


With digital printing, getting high quality prints having artistic designs that are rich in color and vibrant in the way they look. There are no banding or gear marks to dampen the quality of the prints.

Digital Label Printing

Digital label printing can be used to produce labels for wine bottles, heath products, food labels, and other for other items that are normally found on the shelves of a super market. Digital labels can be ordered from any professional label printing company.
