As with every other industry going digital, printing is no exception. Digital printing has revolutionized the way the printing industry has viewed short to medium run, full color and variable data printing. Digital printing does not require the processes of making films, plates or inking up the press. This reduces set-up time and labor, therefore lowering prep charges versus flexographic printing.
With our HP Indigo Digital press, QTL can now offer a wide range of short to medium run labels at an economical cost compared to flexo. Like flexo, digital can print on a variety of substrates which include paper, films, metallics, flexible packaging and up to 18pt folding tag. If you don't see your application or have questions regarding digital printing, call QTL today.

- High Quality
Digital Printing offers high quality and high resolution that flexo just cannot match. Every label will feature crisp text and unparalleled registration. Take your creativity to new heights as you are no longer bound by the rules of the old flexographic printing world.
- Cost Effectiveness
Due to many factors, including the lack of a tedious setup process, Digital Printing is more cost effective, especially for smaller quantities. You will receive no plate charges, little or no setup fees, and minimal change-over costs. All of this adds up to a cost savings for you. Additionally, since there are no plates in digital printing, you have the freedom to update your label or brand anytime without costly new plate charges.
