What it looks like: Digital printing is printing from a computer image file directly to a digital printer as a final output. Image quality is high and it dries almost immediately so you won't wind up with the fading or smudging you might get from printing them yourself. 

How it's done: The printer uses thousands of tiny ink dots to form letters and designs on the paper.

Paper pointers: Digital printing is typically done on thinner paper that's flexible enough to be sent through a printer. Few companies are able to print on thicker paper.

Ink tips: While the ink won't appear as dynamic as it will using other printing processes, you can pretty much choose any color you'd like.

Turnaround time: It's the least expensive and fastest printing option, requiring just a few days for production and shipping.
