Inkjet Print

DEFINITION of 'Inkjet Print'

A form of digital print that is made using an inkjet printer. As a form of art reproduction, inkjet prints became more widely available in the 1980s as digital printer technology improved and printers became less expensive. The first inkjet prints were created with Iris printers.

BREAKING DOWN 'Inkjet Print'

Inkjet prints are created with high-resolution printers, and are of higher quality than older print techniques, such as lithographs. Inkjet prints are also more expensive than lithograph prints due to the use of more expensive inks.

Inkjet prints are available on a variety of surfaces, including canvas, though art dealers may prefer to use the word giclée to describe certain high quality digital prints. This versatility, as well as the quality of the prints, can give the appearance of the print being the original work of art. Inkjet prints are more expensive than many other forms of art reproduction.
