Rotogravure (or gravure for short) is a rotogravure printing process in which the image is engraved on a metal cylinder. It works like offset and flexo printing with a rotary press. Rotogravure, which was once used primarily for newspaper photos, is still used today for commercial printing of magazines, postcards, corrugated board, foil and other product packaging.
Digital printing is a process where a digital image is printed directly from the computer without the need/cost of printing cylinders. It is usually for small quantities where customers need many different designs.
How to choose the right printing technique?
The main difference between digital printing and gravure printing is the method by which the image is applied to the material.
In general, it can be said that digital printing is the best solution for small quantities where the customer needs many different designs. This way, there is no initial cost for the printing cylinders, which are a high initial cost for many different layouts in gravure printing. However, the cost per piece is higher than rotogravure due to the small quantity and digital process.
We recommend rotogravure for customers who want to produce at least 5,000 pieces and do not have many different layouts. This way, the cost per piece is lower and the additional cost for the impression cylinders is only for the first order. This makes repeats cheaper than digital printing.
