Digital printing is any printing process that uses a digital file to create an image using a non-impact imaging transfer method. Common methods include ink jet and electrophotography. Digital printing technology can be divided into two categories based on how the image is transfered to the substrate. These categories are direct to image carrier and direct to paper. Direct to image carrier includes black and white and color electrophotography, while direct to paper includes Ink jet, dye sublimation, thermal direct transfer, electrostatic, and other printing methods that directly image the substrate. Both of these categories are classified as non-impact printing.
