Digital Printing vs. Screen Printing

When you purchase signage, you want to get the best value for your dollar. This involves selecting the best printer (sign company) for the job. So do you use a Digital Printer or a Screen Printer?

What is the difference?

The main differences are colour availability, durability, and time to produce (turnaround).

Digital Printing Method

This allows for a photographic print incorporating much more detail than traditional screen printing.

Digitally printed signs are also laminated, which means the product can last much longer without fading and is more resistant to scratching and damage.

As previously mentioned, digital printers typically apply a clear laminate film over the print to protect it, making the sign last as long as the substrate will hold out.
Screen printing typically does not include this protective overlaminate, therefore the print is more susceptible to weather damage and wear-and-tear.
