Everything you need to know about Digital Print

In the past the sheetfed offset specifications where also frequently used for digital print jobs. While that works, the typical equipment and workflows in digital print are sufficiently different that the Ghent Workgroup wanted to develop separate specifications for them. Some additional restrictions were added, but many restrictions from the sheetfed offset specifications were relaxed as well.

What you should also know is that this section is specific to small-format digital print and does not cover the Sign & display market. The Ghent Workgroup developed specific sign & display specifications.
