Title:Digital Printing
Author(s):Noble, Steve; Kinter, Marci
Subject(s):Digital printing -- Environmental aspects
Abstract:The use of digital printing applications and integration of these applications into traditional print markets is rapidly expanding. Digital, unlike the traditional print processes, is a direct to output device process thus it does not employ a “pre-press” operation as would be associated with traditional commercial printing technologies, i.e., screen or lithographic printing. Instead, the image is created on the computer and transmitted directly to the output device. The other distinct difference between the use of digital applications and traditional print is the relationship between the equipment and ink delivery system. Output devices such as inkjet printers, are developed with a specific ink and ink delivery system in place which is unique to each digital press. The type of equipment chosen is also driven by the product produced. These factors work to limit product substitution options for most systems.
