Case Study

No Stone Without a Name

Scotts were approached to bring this piece of history to life. Written by Philippa O’Brien, No Stone Without a Name is a beautifully written collection of colonial artwork, accompanied by cultural commentary, historical anecdotes and contemporary excerpts.

The brief from the beginning was to design and produce an award winning publication, which cohesively bought the story together.

Our design team worked closely with the author, meticulously designing each page to create this piece. The print team then worked their magic bringing the book to life and reproducing the historic artwork.

Frequently asked questions

What’s the difference between digital and offset printing?

As a general rule, larger quantities are more suited to Offset printing and smaller quantities that are needed in a faster turnaround suit digital printing.

Of course there are exceptions to the rule, talk to your Scotts representative to work out what is right for you.

Digital printing and offset printing are two popular methods used in the printing industry.

While both techniques produce high-quality prints, there are some key differences between them.

Digital printing is a modern printing method that involves transferring digital files directly onto the printing surface.

It uses advanced technology to print images and text with precision and accuracy. This method is ideal for smaller quantities of prints, as it offers a quick turnaround time.

Digital printing is also cost-effective for short print runs, as there are no setup costs involved.

Additionally, it allows for customisation and personalisation, making it suitable for variable data printing, such as personalised direct mail campaigns or individualised marketing materials.

Offset Printing Perth

On the other hand, offset printing is a traditional printing technique that involves transferring ink from a plate to a rubber blanket, and then onto the printing surface.

It is best suited for larger quantities of prints, as the setup costs are higher but the per-unit cost decreases with higher volumes.

Offset printing offers a wide range of colour options and produces vibrant and consistent prints.

It is commonly used for commercial printing, such as brochures, catalogues, and magazines.

Things to consider

When deciding between digital and offset printing, it is important to consider your specific printing needs.

If you require a small quantity of prints with a quick turnaround, digital printing is the way to go.

However, if you need a large volume of prints and can afford a slightly longer production time, offset printing may be more cost-effective in the long run.

Ultimately, the choice between digital and offset printing depends on factors such as quantity, turnaround time, budget, and desired print quality.

Consulting with a printing professional, like Scotts, can help you determine the best printing method for your specific requirements.

We can provide expert advice and guidance to ensure that your prints are produced efficiently and meet your expectations.
