The business card, a must-have communication tool
Why does the business card have a good reputation with people in business? This is because this small format communication tool has many advantages.
The business card, to make yourself known
It is an essential communication tool if you want to become known and expand your professional network.
Indeed, the competition in the professional world is so tough that we must give ourselves every chance to increase its visibility and attract a new clientele. During a physical meeting in the field, the business card is effective in transmitting contact information as well as essential information concerning his professional activities or his company.

The arrival of the Internet and the many possibilities offered by this tool have changed the way of understanding a very old but still irreplaceable sector such as the printing industry. Not so much in its essence, because the products are still those of always (with some new features, of course), but rather in their form, that is online. Indeed, in the online printing press, everything is carried out by means of a very simple procedure that allows you to configure the product, compare prices, customize the order, send the files and much more. Let's see then what are the three key points, and the main advantages, of the world of online printing.
The convenience of ordering from your home or office
We start with comfort. Nowadays, to print any type of product, be it business cards, brochures, canvas, roll up or much more, it is no longer necessary to leave the house and go to a traditional typeface. It only takes a computer or a mobile device to carry out the order in a very simple and fast way: in a few minutes, you can complete the purchase and send the file you want to print. There are several forms of payment, so you can choose the one you prefer. Once the order is completed, you just have to wait for the delivery of your order at the indicated address. A good way to save time.
Competitive prices with the quality of always
Second, another important and interesting aspect of online printing has to do with prices. The products produced by the online fonts are produced together with many other similar orders, with the consequent advantages in terms of production costs, which thanks to economies of scale are reduced, also reducing the final price to customers. That explains why printing online is so convenient. But that does not mean that the quality of the printing or of the products is reduced. Quite the opposite: the characteristics of the products and printing are the same as always. And in online printers all the resources are also offered to obtain an impeccable result; In fact, templates of design instructions can be downloaded for each product, where the characteristics that a file must have for correct printing are explained: the size and bleed of the file, the CMYK color model, the fonts that must be embedded, the minimum recommended resolution, etc. And it's not all: as in any typeface, it is possible to request a proof of imposition and color to check the result before proceeding to the printing of the entire print run.
24-hour service
Third, another positive aspect of online printing and perhaps the most obvious one is that online printers are available every day, 24 hours a day, even on holidays, so it is always possible to place an order and save time.
In conclusion, as explained above, we can say that printing online is convenient and very much, for several reasons.

Digital printing is based on a technology that uses electronic methods for sending digital files to the printing press, without the use of plates or matrices. In recent years, it has entered into competition with traditional printing processes for the production of printed materials in increasingly higher print runs, offering a product of excellent quality.
The working procedure is rather straightforward. The client passes the file to be printed to the prepress technicians who analyze, control and normalize the content. Once final, the file is sent directly to the print media.
Through digital printing, this process is particularly suitable for medium and low runs and can be applied to a large number of types of paper, cardboard and special media.
Digital printing makes it possible to obtain a finished printed product with various advantages:
  • It is a print of high quality and definition
  • It has a work process faster than offset printing and lends itself to deliveries faster
  • It has no start-up costs, so it is possible to print a few copies at low prices
  • Digital color inks are often shinier and brighter than offset
  • It is possible to print variable data, ie different from one copy to another (eg a number or a name pre-printed on a card)
  • Products can be embellished with one of the print imprints of the Digital print Printing Center: for example, UV varnishes and digital embossing.
All these advantages, applied to business cards, posters, invitations, postcards, badges, photographs, calendars, leaflets, catalogs, stickers, have made digital printing an irreplaceable tool in the hands of graphic studios and communication agencies.
The possibility of producing small quantities of goods at rather low costs, without having to make large inventories, has opened new doors to communication: the compromise between print quality, price, and quantity of digital printing is a real mirage for traditional procedures.

What is digital printing exactly?
Digital printing allows you to print directly on paper from digital data available on a computer. This highly responsive printing technique allows for faster printing of your communication documents.
How? Remember how offset printing works:
When printing in offset, printing is not done directly on the paper. It goes through a cylinder covered with a sheet of rubber, from which the ink is transferred to the paper.
With digital printing, the production is done directly on a printer and the documents are formatted by computer processing. So we go directly from the computer to the printer.
The difference between offset printing and digital printing, therefore, lies in the intermediate steps to the final printing of the document. Digital printing, therefore, shortens production times by eliminating certain steps between document design and offset printing.
A different final rendering
In digital printing, inks are usually powdered, and baked on the surface of the paper, while in liquid form for offset, printing. In the finished document, digital printing gives a glossy visual on all types of paper used. In offset, the inks are liquid and absorbed in part by the paper. So there is some difference in color for the same project depending on the finish and paper used.
Documents printed with digital printing generally have a maximum size of 30 cm x 45 cm. The ink is more surface, it is more fragile to friction and folding. Nevertheless, many documents can be printed digitally: pads, brochures, business cards, etc.
