Digital print with screenprinted spot glaze

Home / glossary / Digital print with screenprinted spot glaze

A print process in which a sophisticated inkjet printer is used to print an image, using fine-grained pigment inks (rather than dye). Piezoelectric technology forces ink through microscopic holes. The ink droplets are then electrostatically steered onto the surface of the paper. The result is a high-quality, high-definition archival print.

A varnish is then applied into the surface of the print using the screenprinting technique. In this case, 4 layers of gloss varnish are applied to every-other line of the thumbprint motif, to replicate the texture of a fingerprint.
