Important Information PRINTING - DIGITAL Four Color Process Only - In general, digital printing is more cost effective on smaller quantities and has shorter turn-around times . It also gives you the opportunity to print variable text or images (additional charge) . As quantities go up, offset printing is usually the better choice, because the unit cost goes down . If you’re planning to print using the Pantone® Matching System, offset printing will give you the best match since it uses Pantone inks . Digital printing simulates PMS colors using four color process toner inks, so color matching is less accurate . Large solid areas and screen tints produce better on an offset press . Digital printing will not match offset printing. Digital Printing Artwork Note: Graphics MUST be CMYK; not RGB or PMS .
