Golden Digital Grounds

Golden Digital Grounds

Golden Digital Grounds turn just about any relatively flat surface into an ink-jet printable surface, providing the control and freedom to create textures and surfaces at whatever scale and shape desired.

While almost any porous surface that is flat enough can be run through an ink-jet printer, including off-the-shelf papers made for printmaking and watercolor, results are usually less than satisfactory with the resulting image dull, faint or blurry. For the most part this is caused by the substrate being overly absorbent, with no way to encapsulate or prevent the ink from spreading outward or penetrating too far into the surface. Conversely, on non-porous materials like acetate, plastic and metal, the inks readily pool up, run, and are easily smeared by both the printer mechanism and subsequent handling.

In order to combat these problems and achieve the desired richness of color and detail, each droplet of ink somehow needs to be kept distinct and held in place by the substrate. This is perhaps the major function and benefit of applying an ink-jet receptive coating.

When working with any of the new Digital Grounds damage to your printer is always a possibility. Because of that, use of older, less valuable printers can sometimes be a good way to initially experiment and learn about these products. If using a higher-end printer, or one still under warranty, realize that modifying your printer in any way, or using materials not approved by the manufacturer, will usually void that coverage.
