Digital Printing is a new kind of printing technology that allows you to print on demand on virtually any surface, even a desk or a shelf.
As we saw with the latest Apple iPad, this is a fantastic platform for creating great designs, but is it ready to revolutionise how we print?
To find out, we asked a team of experts to analyse how this new technology is shaping the print industry, and why it could have so many implications for the printmaking world.
We wanted to know how we can be sure the technology is truly ready to make an impact on printmaking, and how we will be able to make use of it in the digital world.
In the meantime, we want to hear from you about your experiences and ideas.
What is the Digital Printing revolution?
The printing industry has long been dominated by physical goods, and many of these are made using paper.
The paper industry is also dominated by large corporations, which have an interest in producing cheap and reliable paper products.
However, paper has been around for a long time, and this has led to a lot of innovation in how to print onto the surface of the paper.
Today, we have a whole range of new types of printing technologies, including inkjet printing and the printing of watercolour.
However the printing industry is still a very young one, and new print techniques are being developed all the time.
There are lots of different ways to print with the same material, such as laser-printing.
This allows for the use of a laser to produce a 3D object, or a scanning electron microscope (SEM) to scan a printable surface.
These new technologies are really exciting, but we need to be aware of the fact that these new technologies can be harmful to print, and therefore need to come with a risk assessment.
This is why we ask printmakers, designers, and engineers from the print manufacturing industry to help us understand how digital printing can impact the print production industry and the future of printing.
What are the challenges with digital printing?
We need to understand how these new print technologies will be used, and whether they will be useful for us in the print making world.
For instance, how will the digital printing industry be affected by the rise of e-book printing, and the impact of the new technology of the digital transfer printer (DTP)?
In a paper world, we don’t use the inkjet process anymore, so we need an alternative way to print.
We also need to consider the impact that the digital technology is having on the printing process.
How are we going to print the future?
What are our options for printing digital content?
Digital technologies are changing the way that people interact with content, and will also have a huge impact on the way the world produces information.
We are entering a new era in the printed world, and printing will change dramatically in the coming years.
We need to find a way to deal with this digital transformation in printmaking in a way that makes it safe and easy for everyone.
For example, it’s not just about making a copy of a document or creating an album in the future.
We should be able see how the printed pages are being printed and then make our own printouts.
We don’t have to use the same printing technique every time, so it’s possible to use new technology, such an inkjet printer, for the first time.
This will allow us to print digitally in a number of different places, which will have a direct impact on how we design products and print products.
In this way, we will create new opportunities for printing, whether it’s with a physical object or with digital content.

What is printmaking?
Printing is a way of making an object.
You can do it on your computer or a tablet, or you can print on a printer or the internet.
It’s about creating an object, rather than copying a piece of paper.
It doesn’t matter what size or shape the object you are printing is.
For most of us, it will be something small, such a small cup, or something large, such that it can be easily printed and displayed on a screen.
How are printouts created?
We often have printed copies of a page, or an album, printed onto the screen.
In most printmaking processes, we use a laser scanner to print a copy onto a surface.
The laser cuts the paper at a specific wavelength, and then the paper is then scanned by a scanning device, or the laser beam is used to create a 3-D object.
There are many different methods of producing digital images from printed pages.
Some are using inkjet printers, which are based on the same technology as those used in the ink-jet printers we use to print paper.
Other processes involve the use the laser to scan digital images onto a printout, or to print an image from an image.
