Having the ability to print one and even multiple designs upfront to prototype is helping drive some innovation. Variable data like Mosaic and Collage are starting to be seen by brands. Companies traditionally take the SKUs that come with large bids as loss leaders, but now they can not only make money on the larger SKUs and be more competitive but make money on the shorter SKUs digitally.
Instead of having to put all your eggs into one basket by choosing a design, the flexibility that digital offers in printing many SKUs and seeing which works and fine-tune as you go is truly game changing.
Digital Printing is the Future
Digital label and shrink sleeve production is experiencing faster growth. The label sector has been an early adopter of digital printing. Digitally printed labels have boomed in recent years, driven by market demands for shorter runs, more customized packaging, greater sustainability and the need to help products stand out even more. The rest of the packaging market is following. We have seen a tipping point in the industry with more new narrow web digital press installations than flexo presses. Beyond labels, analysts expect a strong growth in digital for corrugated, folding carton and flexible applications. Labels and corrugated containers with digital printing that make them stand out with bright colors and snappy graphics.
