Digital printing in packaging is the process of transferring a digital file (usually a JPEG or PDF file) directly to a printer for applications on packaging materials. The digital files are converted into the CMYK color system to communicate more accurate color output from screen to substrate. Unlike offset printing, digital printers don’t require any manual labor for set up, meaning there are no dyes or paper rolls to be installed.
