Throughout history, technology has provided artists with new tools for expression. Where would Andy Warhol have been without silk screen printing and David Hockney without the Polaroid? Digital printing now offers artists new ways to create and sell art. Digitally printed artwork is rapidly increasing in popularity and acceptance—galleries, hotels, offices, restaurants, casinos and other venues are huge markets for giclée prints and other digitally printed fine art. Many photographers and fine artists embrace digital printing of their images as a form of expression, or as an additional way to market their work at reasonable prices.
