Digital Printing For lower volume materials, choose high quality digital color printing. Digital printing is the standard production method for short run, full color and fast turn around. With digital color, we offer the option to include variable data as well as a variety of papers and full service bindery. Quantities of 1,000 or less are usually printed digitally.

Offset printing Traditional "ink on paper" offset printing provides a high quality printing option for quantities from 500 - 25,000. Offset allows us to print on almost any paper substrate from labels and carbonless forms to envelopes or pre-foiled invitations. Many sheets that won't work on a laser or inkjet printer can be used on our offset press.

Large Format Printing Large format printing refers to printed substrates that is larger than most digital copiers or printing presses can produce. Also referred to as grand format or wide format printing, the process involves specialty printing equipment that can produce custom images printed directly onto a variety of materials. At American Printing & Copying, we print on a wide variety of substrates using UV curable inks to create a durable product and a lasting impression.
