Digital Printing

digital printing

In 1985 Midtown Printing became a pioneer in digital printing with the introduction of the Macintosh computer.  Over the last  three decades we have invested and reinvested in digital printing equipment to stay on the cutting edge of this fast changing technology.  We currently have a number of Canon B&W and color laser printers, Indigo four color digital offset press, Xeikon digital perfecting web press and other digital devices for imaging and platemaking.  In the first few years of the second millennium digital printing has become at least as significant as offset printing and continues to grow in importance.
