Share post:

Finding the proper packaging solution for your business can be overwhelming, from long lead times to high setup costs. 

Complete Packaging Solutions offers digital printing to simplify your packaging process and achieve impressive results. Opting for digital printing can decrease turnaround times while providing high-quality packaging that distinguishes your brand.

What is Digital Printing? 

Digital printing involves transferring online files (like JPEGs or PDFs) directly onto surfaces, such as paper or fabric, without needing extra steps like plates or screens. 

Digital printing is quick, efficient, and ideal for small batches or custom prints. It’s widely used in commercial printing, packaging, textiles, and more, offering reduced setup time, lower costs, and consistent, vibrant output.

Using Digital Printing for Custom Packaging 

Digital printing is a cost-effective, flexible, and high-quality solution for businesses looking to create custom packaging that stands out on the shelves. 

Partnering with Complete Packaging Solutions for digital printing means you can expect: 

  1. Cost-effective for Small Runs

Digital printing eliminates the need for setup, while traditional printing methods often require expensive setup costs, making them less practical for small quantities.

Opting for digital reduces costs and makes producing custom packaging in small batches more affordable.

  1. Quick Turnaround

Enjoy shorter lead times than traditional methods. This allows businesses to quickly produce custom packaging to meet tight deadlines, such as those for product launches or promotional events.

  1. Customization and Personalization

Digital printing allows for high levels of customization. Each package can feature unique designs, colors, and individualized elements like customer names or messages.

This level of customization lets businesses create memorable brand experiences and establish personalized connections with their customers.

  1. Flexibility for Design Changes

Unlike traditional printing methods, which require new plates or screens for each design iteration, digital files can be easily modified and reprinted without incurring significant additional costs or delays.

  1. High-Quality Results

Digital printing means designing with vibrant colors, sharp images, and fine details. It is important to note here, though, that digital can only use CMYK, not RGB. 

This ensures that custom packaging looks visually appealing and maintains brand consistency and professionalism.

  1. Reduced Waste

Digital printing produces less waste than traditional methods because it doesn’t require the creation of printing plates or screens.

When to Choose Digital Printing for Packaging Solutions 

Digital printing for packaging provides a wide range of advantages, such as fast prototyping, top-notch graphics, customized experiences, minimal inventory risk, sustainability, and quick time-to-market.

If your business requires frequent packaging design changes for promotions or seasonal deals, digital printing is the ideal choice. This method allows for easy and quick adjustments, reducing the time it takes for your product to be ready for the shelves.

It offers a faster turnaround time than traditional methods, enabling you to meet tight deadlines and capitalize on market opportunities. Additionally, if you need to test different packaging designs in small market segments to gather consumer feedback, you can enjoy multiple variations without large-scale commitment. 

Another scenario where digital printing excels is in rapid prototyping. The automotive and medical industries especially need to quickly produce samples to test and iterate, ensuring the final product meets all design and functional requirements.
