  • Ink Is The Greatest.......

    Missive Weapon Of All The Battles Of The Learned.

    Use to be certainly true. Don't know if it still pertains and resonates.

        Give me ink over toner anyday.
        A job printed with ink was always reprinted and solution rectified if gas ghosting occured - digital toner gloss ghosting job goes out the door.

        A job printed with ink was not acceptable if the screens looked mottled - digital toner it goes out the door

        A job printed with ink was not acceptable to have cracking durring folding - digital toner it goes out the door.

        A job printed with ink wasnt acceptable if it carbonized during cutting - digital toner chiping during cutting job goes out the door

        this is is technology that is being pushed as the replacement to short run offset why are there so many key quality standards being sacrificed compared to a jon printed with INK ?

          You're pretty much right, but at the end of the day, the dollars and timeline matter for each offset and digital job. Toner press technology is advancing pretty well, but I totally agree that ink on paper is much sexier any day of the week. And it's not like there is some magical technology between ink and toner that we are all ignoring anyways.

              There is no craft left in everyday commercial printing. It's purely commodity printing at this point. There's still a few niches out there, but general commercial printing is a simple commodity. I'd say at least 95% of the customers are just office people or secretaries who just need 500 books because their boss said they needed it for a meeting tomorrow (planning anything ahead of time is dead). They aren't looking for ghosting, or a pixel out of registration - They just want something that's legible and overall fairly decent looking. 95% of the stuff I print these days will be in the trash within 6 months.

              Zero Setup Time:
              Myth Or Reality?

              As the twenty-first century opened, Koenig & Bauer had already anticipated the need for the coexistence of conventional and digital printing, and had begun to develop the technology that is today empowering offset printers to meet those challenges.
