Digital yearbook printing is surprisingly easy and inexpensive nowadays. Most people are still surprised to learn how simple the process is. Anyone can order as many copies as they need and expect to get a great value for the money. In this article, we will see how and why the digital yearbook printing process has become this easy and affordable over the years.
The printing process is now much different from what it used to be a few centuries ago. Back in the 15th century, printing was slow and complex. People had to assemble type together using their own hands to place each letter, and they couldn’t arrange more than 2000 letters or characters in any one hour. It was extremely challenging to print a one-hundred-page book within a short time period.
Today, computers do most of the work that people used to do, so the printing process is much easier and faster. Computers automatically arrange the same number of letters and characters in a matter of seconds.
Computers were integrated into the printing process in the 1970s, making the process itself a lot faster. Thanks to technology, humanity can now print more words per second than it could print per year about five centuries ago.
Speaking of yearbooks in particular, according to some research data, they date back to the 17th century, in the form of scrapbooks. The first published yearbook belongs to a graduating class at Yale College (1806), while the first high-school yearbook was published in New York (1845). However, it took a while for the yearbook companies to start taking printing orders – they didn’t start doing so until the 1930s.
Back in the day, yearbook printing required a lot of time and energy from all of the people involved in the process. Nowadays, we can deliver the printing orders in just a few days, in accordance with the customer’s preferences.
Digital printing is a relatively new process and it offers numerous benefits. Compared to offset printing, digital printing makes printing yearbooks very affordable. Until recently, only large and well funded universities and companies could afford yearbook printing due to the high offset printing fees. But, digital printing gives all small schools and businesses the opportunity to place digital yearbook printing orders that are cost effective.
Offset printing requires setting up special plates, presses, and setup fees, all of which are quite costly for small print orders. As the quantity of printed materials increases, offset printing becomes more affordable. But for a small class yearbook order, digital printing is the most cost-effective choice.
Unlike offset printing, digital printing doesn’t require setup fees; it prints directly from the digital file sent to a digital printer. This allows you to print the desired quantity of materials without paying large fees.
With the rapid development of digital printing technology, expecting a quality service has become the norm. Today, digital printing provides the same level of quality as offset printing. In fact, it’s almost impossible to tell them apart for anyone except a well trained printing professional.
