What is Digital Printing?

Digital printing is a class of technologies that reproduces an image by controlling the number or the thickness of some colorant coating on the material to be printed. The colorant is applied in small dots (or pixels) that can be discretely controlled to produce patterns that appear to be images when viewed at some distance. Most commonly, the dots are made by liquid inks spurted from small nozzles (“ink jet”) or small particles collected by electrostatic charges (“Electrophotography”).
