We are often asked how SunDance determines if a project should be produced using digital or offset technology. One of the driving factors is order quantity. Assuming there is no variable data such as personalization which would require the use of digital technology, Offset printing will yield a lower unit cost on higher order quantity projects, but there are higher upfront costs involved in getting the first sheet off the press. The distribution of the upfront costs over a greater quantity is commonly referred to as economies of scale which result in a lower unit cost than digital can provide.
At SunDance, our mission is to offer customers an extensive portfolio of print products and services to make their brand stand out, which is why we recently purchased an HP Indigo 6 Digital Press to print custom labels and flexible packaging. We’re excited to partner with this industry leader in digital printing technology as HP is known for its print quality, productivity, and versatility.
