Commercial printing is a printing method used by businesses to produce large volumes of printed materials. Many businesses invest in this type of printing to help grow their business because of the speed capabilities, high quality printing capabilities, and different finishing options available.
A commercial printer fares better in a large business than a smaller office printer due to the capabilities available in commercial printers. Commercial printing grants you better printing speeds, prices, and functionality than you would get with a standard office printer, making it a fantastic option for most businesses.

What types of commercial printing are available?
Commercial printing is not a one size fits all solution. Different commercial printing types are available that may be more suitable for specific industries or businesses. Below are a few of the most popular and common types.
Offset printing is the most popular type of commercial printing due to its ability to produce a large volume of prints at the most stellar quality. Your print jobs will be crisp, clear, and easy to read. The offset printing process includes image transfer to create the final product or print.
Although one of the most popular methods, offset printing can be more time-consuming than other available methods like digital printing. It is also an expensive option, depending on the running length. The real benefit here is the image and print quality this type of printing offers.
If you focus primarily on speed and producing the shortest runs, digital printing will be a better option. Despite popular belief, digital printing is not as far off in quality as offset printing. Traditional advice would be to stick with offset printing for superior quality. However, digital printing has made significant strides over the years to keep up.
Although it might not be 100% accurate compared to offset printing, it is close. Plus, it is a cheaper option. When you use digital printers, the printer uses lasers and toners to print the final product. With this option, there is more room for personalization of your prints. Businesses are becoming increasingly digital, and we anticipate this becoming a dominant printing method.
