Digital prints emerged around the same time as digital art in the 1960s - when digital devices such as computers began becoming more widespread. Rather than being produced through hand-pulled methods, digital printing allows an image to be printed directly from digital data.
The most common type of digital print is a Glicée print. The name originates from the French verb gicler which means to squirt or spray. This technique results in a high quality print with vivid colours, created through the use of pigment based inks.
