Digital prints

Digital printing is a method of printing from a digital based image onto a variety of materials. The greatest advantage of digital printing over traditional methods of printing is that no replacement of printing plates is required, which results in quicker turnaround time and lower cost but on the other hand certain fine image details are lost. Another advantage is that it serves the demands of customisation unmatched by the traditional methods, using inkjet and laser printers mostly. Images are sent to these printers using digital files such as those from graphic software's like Photoshop and illustrator. Thus further these printers work by depositing respective pigments onto a wide variety of substrates such as paper, fabrics, ceramics, glass, metal, marble etc.
