are many different types of ink jet printers on the market
today. What is common to them is that technology that drives
them can be broken down into several categories.
Ink jet printers use a technology called Non-Impact Print.
This technology does not touch the paper
when creating an image and instead uses a series of nozzles
to spray drops of ink directly onto the paper.
Different types of inkjet printers form their droplets of
ink to deposit in several different ways. The most popular
of these methods is a technique called bubble jet.
With a bubble
jet printer, tiny resistors create heat, and this heat vaporizes
ink to create a bubble on the head of the print head. The
expansion that creates the bubble causes a droplet to form
and then ejects if from the print head onto the paper.
A typical bubble
jet print head has 64 or 128 tiny nozzles, and all of them
can fire a droplet simultaneously.
You can achieve some real high quality
printing on ink jet printable media. With the advancements
in bubble jet technology, some of the printers will produce
picture quality images on to the face of a CD or DVD.
It is important that correct media is
used when printing with an ink jet printer. If the wrong media
is used, the image will smear and the ink will not bond to
the surface of the disc.

printable media as well and top of the line ink jet printers.
