Colour printing at 100,000dpi


#1
Hey guys, I came across this technology that allows you to colour print at 100,000 dots per inch - in other words, the theoretical resolution limit. I thought it was pretty cool! The technology behind it seems pretty complicated but I wanted to ask you... what would you use such high resolution colour printing for? It seems a bit OTT.

Hi there, welcome to the forum.

I guess it would make photographs and all forms of large format printing look better. Surely the price of this is quite high though?

I can't see any value to increased output resolution in large format print, or even standard printing. These sorts of resolutions might be useful for security work, but no practical use in normal commercial printing springs to mind.
