Sheet Size

Max Sheet 13" x 19"

Variable Text


Can print variable text or images where each sheet off the press is unique in some personalized way (database driven for mailing lists, marketing materials, direct mail pieces, letters, etc. with a different name/address or number/code on each printed piece)


Must dry or be coated before handling[.] More suitable if your piece requires finishing such as tight register foil stamping, embossing, die cutting, etc.

Once a sheet is off a digital press it can be cut, folded
or finished immediately

Special Inks

Yes - metallics, fluorescents. PMS colours
Including Aqueous Coating & Varnishes

No special inks (metallics, fluorescents) since
all colors will have to fall within a CMYK gamut

Stock/Printing Surfaces

Works on a wide range of printing surfaces including
thick paper, rough paper and specialty papers

Limited choice of stocks available


If you need hard-copy proofs, very accurate, colour proofing can be expensive
