Presstek DI presses allow printers to be vastly more competitive in a market place that continually demands faster turnaround times and shorter press runs at lower costs, without sacrificing on print quality.
The Presstek DI printing process is made possible by the interaction of three core technologies, laser imaging, thermal digital media, and unique press design. Energy efficiency and small footprints make Presstek presses a popular choice with small and medium sized printers where floorspace can be restrictive.

Although press and print technologies have become very advanced in the modern era, not every printer chooses to follow the digital route. Indeed many craftsmen printers still prefer the more hands-on approach of traditional offset printing where the artistry of the final printed product is controlled by the skilled press minder, rather than by computer.
This approach is typical of smaller commercial print operations producing shorter print runs or products with many spot colours or special treatments, or of the craftsmen printer producing art products and reproduction prints for example.
