by Wikoff|02.02.23


Making the transition into digital printing provides high-volume printers a new set of tools to better serve their clients. Not all jobs are a great fit for conventional printing technologies and so adding digital capabilities will broaden the range of customers in the market for your services.

Benefits of going digital include:

  • No more delayed turnaround times
  • Never say “no” to jobs that require high levels of customization across a long list of runs
  • Making changes is a breeze – as is setting up for a short deadline job that just came in
  • Zero pre-press stages between receiving digital document files and printing
  • No plates and no chemicals
  • Highly detailed, optimal printing for order quantities of any size
  • Be more successful and more profitable
  • Easy 4 color printing – pick a color and the digital printer does the rest

But how can you take advantage of all these benefits without a complete overhaul of your press and equipment? 

It’s easy. You call Wikoff Digital.

In this post, we’ll explain how the Wikoff Digital team are experts at easing traditional pressrooms into the digital world, using the equipment you already have in your pressroom! 

Introducing the bolt-on inkjet printer

What is a bolt-on inkjet printer?

A bolt-on inkjet printer is exactly what it sounds like. It’s an add-on digital inkjet printer that can be easily connected to an existing press, for fast integration and low capital cost. It’s an affordable solution developed by Integrators to enable Printers to make the digital leap with minimal time and resource investment and without having to redesign their pressroom.

Simply purchase a bolt-on inkjet printer from a Wikoff Digital Integrator partner and collaborate with the Integrator and Wikoff Digital to implement a solution, and – voila! – you’re able to join the world of digital printing! 

Do I need a standard or custom-built bolt-on inkjet printer?

There are two types of bolt-on inkjet printers: standard out-of-the-box and custom-built. 

The Wikoff Digital team and our Integrator partners have the experience and resources to determine which type of solution is right for you. We work as a team to understand your requirements and goals in order to create and install the best solution.
