A print created by a contact-free printer that distributes droplets of ink over a surface to create an image. Most often a print head with nozzles moves across paper depositing liquid ink in cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, although some professional-grade printers employ up to 12 colors. Many different printer types exist, and they can be used with a wide range of supports including papers, textiles, and metals. Introduced in the 1980s, inkjet prints became increasingly common in the 1990s. The process, which produces prints that can closely resemble photographs made in a darkroom, continues to improve in sophistication, and is widely used today.
