The Benefits of Combining Print Technologies

Hybrid print technology uses digital printing to lay down a base layer of ink, which is then embellished with offset lithograph printing techniques. This allows for the production of high-quality prints at a faster rate and lower cost than traditional printing methods alone. Additionally, hybrid print technology allows for the use of metallic inks, which are difficult to achieve with digital printing alone. The result is a print that has the depth and texture of offset printing methods, with the speed and cost-effectiveness of digital printing.

Examples of Hybrid Print Technology in Action

Hybrid print technology is being used in a variety of industries, from fashion to packaging to marketing. One example is the use of hybrid printing in luxury packaging. By combining digital printing with traditional printing methods, luxury brands can produce high-quality, tactile packaging that reflects the quality of their products. Another example is the use of hybrid printing in marketing materials. By using metallic inks and other embellishments, businesses can create eye-catching prints that stand out from the competition.
