What is Lithography?
Lithography, or Litho Printing for short, was invented in the late 1700s in Germany by a Bavarian playwright who discovered by accident that he could duplicate his scripts by using simple chemical processes. The image of the content you want to produce is placed on a plate which is then covered in ink and used for printing. Today most high-volume text like books, newspapers and packaging uses litho printing because of the high quality results and the fast turnaround.
What is the difference between Digital and Litho Printing?
The basic difference between the two is that litho printing uses wet ink and printing plates while digital printers use toners on a press similar to the office printer. Digital makes prints from a simple electronic file. Whilst litho takes longer to setup than a digital printer, it’s quicker to do high quantities of high quality repeat items. Digital printing is more suited to shorter print runs as it’s a quicker form or printing and more cost-effective.
