digital prints

Details

Broadly describes physical manifestations made from digital image files that are achieved by the application or generation of colorant to a substrate, and that are not struck directly from a material master matrix. This is in contrast to traditional prints struck from matrices such as printing plates, blocks, negatives or transparencies, though these may be the primary origin of imagery. Digital prints have as their immediate source electronic signals that drive any of a variety of printing mechanisms.
