Wide-format Digital Inkjet Printing and related services
In digital inkjet or “giclee” printing, digital information is sent from a computer to a printer that “plots” the image bit by bit, “spitting” tiny ink droplets onto a sheet or roll of paper as it passes along. The first of these “plotters” were primitive, rendering only lines and other simple shapes for displays such as graphs and charts. Modern machines, like my Epson 9600, though, can print delicate and subtle high resolution images as well, matching or even surpassing traditional photography. Add to that the ability to print anything brought together on the computer screen on a variety of beautiful media, and you have a formidable printing tool.

Eventually, an irresistible moment presented itself and he grabbed his camera and went up to the roof for an unobstructed view.
An enthusiastic convert to the digital camera in 2007 after a lifetime using traditional equipment, Fausty often uses the more
