What is the downside of digital printing?

Digital Printing Weaknesses

There is no real quantity discount when it comes to digital printing presses. Your unit cost stays more or less the same no matter what quantity you print. That's great if you want a small number of copies, but not so great if you want several thousand copies.

*Digital printing is generally more expensive than offset in quantities over 400, so it pays to shop for a digital printer.
