SA Litho label printers was the first company in the Western Cape to invest in self-adhesive digital print technology. Today, we are recognised as one of a handful of companies the world over that set the benchmark in digital printing, and as such were invited to speak at the Digital Summit in Barcelona in March 2009. More and more clients are choosing digital label printing as it delivers brilliant quality, comparable to that of lithography, in smaller print runs, while still offering value-added effects such as foiling, high-build and embossing.
