Over the last 15 years Inkjet printing technology has seen an explosion in innovation. It seem now that almost anything is possible with inkjet printing but the choice of technologies can be overwhelming for print service providers, never mind your every day customer. In the following article I am going to lay out some basic rules of thumb to help you pick the right process for you application.
Is your print going to be displayed in a protected interior environment or in an exposed exterior environment? As you may expect the standard rule that things that might get wet need to be waterproof also applies to printing. This mean that both the media and the ink need to stand up to weathering, which requires an aggressive ink chemistry known as solvent or eco solvent printing.
