Ligare Digital Print Capability

Flexibility with offset-like quality

Digital publication printing means that you can economically:

  • keep older titles in print,
  • re-publish out of print titles,
  • custom publish course materials,
  • publish niche titles with limited markets,
  • supply educational materials for specific subjects,
  • supply marketing materials ahead of publication,
  • deliver short runs of new publications to test the market,
  • publish short-run corporate reports or prospectuses,
  • publish family histories or autobiographies for your own use.

The possibilities open to you with digital printing are only limited by your imagination. We can keep your publication on file giving you unlimited order options throughout the life of the title.

Binding options

Your digital publications can also be bound with all the binding options offered at Ligare's bindery.

File format options

Our preferred file format is Acrobat PDF with embedded fonts. However we can also accept the following files:

  • Indesign – Mac & PC
  • Illustrator – Mac & PC
  • Photoshop – Mac & PC
  • Pagemaker – Mac & PC
  • QuarkXpress – Mac & PC


One of the great advantages of digital print is that you only print your exact needs. From 100 to 300 copies can be available to you within a few weeks. You save on warehouse and transportation costs of a larger than necessary run, as well as the inventory management costs; balancing unit cost against these other real costs makes short-run digital printing a realistic solution.

We can also run extra covers on the conventional 4 colour cover press to keep aside for you with the first run, and then as each subsequent run is needed the cost is lessened and the turn-around time is shortened even further.

Quality control

Ligare Digital can produce a full production proof of your publication for you to approve before printing which you can request at quotation.

The latest additions to Ligare Digital are Canon ImagePRESS C1000 and Océ VarioPrint Titan 6180 print engines. Both print engines have offset-like print quality from a digital press.

Both print engines are a simultaneous duplex systems which maintains 100% accurate registration and offset-like quality while producing up to 180 prints per minute for the Océ VarioPrint 6180 and up to 100 pages per minute for the ImagePRESS C1000.

Environmental responsibility

The Océ VarioPrint 6180 and ImagePRESS C1000 minimise the environmental impact at every stage: from low emissions and energy savings, right through to optimised asset recovery at end-of-life.

No Electronic File?

Many older titles have no electronic file available. This is no problem as we can take your mint copy book, scan the text and cover, and then print the new copies as required.

Please note that scanning results may vary from the original, and also the mint copy book will be dismantled for this procedure. Ligare can rebind the original book for you if required.
