What is a digital print?

Developed around 1993, digital printing involves printing a computer image file with a laser or inkjet printer, bypassing the printing plate altogether.

Lending itself to on-demand printing as well as allowing for modifications of the image for each impression, digital printing has become increasingly popular, rivalling offset printing in its versatility and rapidity. Types of digital printing include inkjet prints and C-prints. For examples of digital prints see Josephine Meckseper's Untitled (March on Washington 9/24/05, Coffins, Xray), 2005/2007, Claire Fontaine’s Untitled (Castor# 2), 2013, or Robert Longo's Small Earth, 2012.
