Digital Printing has continued to rise in both importance and capabilities over the last few decades. Manufacturers such as Xerox, Ricoh, Konica Minolta and Canon have been competing for years to improve print quality and speed all while reducing costs and increasing efficiency. 


It wasn’t too many years ago that Offset Printing was still the gold standard. The original printing press was founded in Germany around the 1400’s and to this day much of the technology has not changed a great deal. Digital Printing started to take hold in the 1960’s with Xerox and others beginning to first make production quality black and white machines and then eventually color. Digital Printing revolutionized the printing industry and had a lot to do with creating a new industry of “Quick Printers” who no longer had to spend millions of dollars on massive machines.


Early digital printing really struggled with quality but speed, versatility and the lack of set up time really caused it to begin to take hold.  While commercial printers continued to improve their speed, quality, and efficiencies, manufacturers turned to making the machines smaller and smaller. The first smaller digital printers began to show up in offices around the world considerably increasing the productivity of virtually every company they were introduced in. Later as the actual sizes and dimensions of these machines continued to get smaller they became used in individual office and home environments.


The biggest reason for the rise of digital printing in the world of commercial printing though is it’s significant increase in the quality of the images. It has really only been in the last few years that digital printing has begun to rival the quality of offset printing. As technologies continue to improve there will come a day very soon where image quality is equal to or better than offset and while offset will still be a tremendous option for large run jobs, it's place in the industry is beginning to shrink.
