By now, you’re probably aware that the inkjet has come a long way since its inception in the early 90s, but the printing process itself remains largely unchanged.
Here’s a quick rundown of some of the biggest differences between today’s and the old days.1.
The inkjet cartridge is thinner and thinner.
For the first time, a cartridge can be as small as a penny, and smaller cartridges can now be used for printing.2.
The cartridges are smaller and lighter than their older-time counterparts.
A typical inkjet can weigh between 25 grams and 35 grams, with cartridges now weighing around a gram and a half.3.
The cartridge is now thinner and lighter.
According to the European Union’s National Institute for Information Technology (INET), inkjet cartridges now weigh around 7.5 grams.4.
You can now print with your ink-jet printer directly from your computer.
In recent years, however, inkjet inkjet prints have been made available for all major platforms, including Windows, Mac, and Linux.5.
You now have a better chance of getting a great print.
A standard inkjet’s printhead can be up to a meter in diameter, but most modern inkjet-equipped printers can be printed up to two feet away.6.
You no longer have to wait for the ink to dry.
You’ll be able to print at your desktop or laptop computer, with your computer then running inkjet software that takes care of the rest.7.
Your inkjet will continue to run longer.
Inkshapers have been using inkjet technology for decades, and they’re still the most widely used inkjet platform.8.
There’s a lot less ink, too.
A 3,000-watt inkjet that prints at 30,000 dots per inch has now been shrunk to 1,000 watts, down from 4,000 and 8,000 w/ft., respectively.9.
The process is much faster.
For inkjet applications, the ink cartridge is smaller than that of a traditional printer, which can take several hours to print a single page.
The smaller ink cartridge allows for a much faster inkjet process, which translates to a quicker time to print the first page.10.
You’re getting better printing quality.
According the European Commission, the average price of a standard ink cartridge has gone down from $1,600 to $1.00 in the last 10 years, as manufacturers have become more efficient.11.
You get more printing options.
Some inkjet users are looking to upgrade to inkjet models with greater capabilities.
Some also want to try out the new “laser printer,” which can print images in the dark or at a much lower magnification than standard ink.
