Digital printing is a modern cost and time efficient on demand method of printing a digital based image by sending it directly to the printer, without the need of using a printing plate or a press, like in offset printing. This type of printing can be done with both inkjet and laser printers and on a variety of materials, such as different types of paper, gloss, satin or matte photographic paper, canvas, glass, marble and metal, among many others.

The advantages of digital printing include shorter time and lower costs of producing even small quantities of prints, by eliminating the expenses of making plates and the time needed to set up presses and easier changes and multiple variation solutions for any job. However, the only drawback of the digital printing could be that the quality of the prints might not be the same as with an offset printer, but this is not very noticeable in most cases and is usually neglected, considering all of the advantages.

If you are looking for the best digital printers to use at home or for business use, you can choose from the offer of many suppliers in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, that provide a variety of inkjet, laser, LED, dye sublimation or solid ink printing solutions.

When choosing the most suitable type of printer you should take into consideration the types, sizes and quantities of printing jobs that you intend to use it for, as well as the materials that you want to print on and the results that you are looking to achieve.

Inkjet printers are mostly recommended for at home use or for offices of small businesses, because they are considered the slowest. They are usually inexpensive and produce good color output, especially on coated glossy, satin or matte photographic paper. Photos printed with an inkjet printer are higher in quality that with other types, so if you plan on printing many images, this might be the best option.

Laser or LED printers are recommended for business use since they are faster, have higher duty cycles and are the best for text or color graphics printing. They are a little bit more expensive than the previously mention, but imply lower costs for use, since toner cartridges last a longer time. If you plan on printing mostly documents at the office, the laser version would be more suitable, as it is also a time and cost efficient solution.

Both with inkjet and laser digital printers, you can choose between multifunction models that print, copy, scan and sometimes even fax, and models that simply print, and between color or monochrome options, according to your personal needs or the needs of your business.
