Better in the Long Run.

Lithography is the go to of most designers, and with good reason. It gives you the ability to print on a far wider variety of substrates and very few digital machines can match the superior quality of Lithography. Exceptionally economical for longer runs, with an initial setup costing more than digital printing, but costs reduce dramatically during the run.
