Dot matrix?

Response to Dell C1660W

Modern inkjet printers don't print in a matrix, especially when printing from a vector-based file. They lay drops of ink wherever needed to reproduce the image in a file and are thus more analogous to a photographic emulsion, on which dyes appear only where activated by the light energy of a projected image.

Raster files, such as jpegs, are technically grids, but since it is native to the file, any type of printer would reproduce their file matrix.

Inkjet printers are designed to print with a fidelity and sharpness meant to supersede traditional photographic quality, and print generally sharper and clearer images than do laser printers. Color fidelity and richness is far better with pigment-based inkjets, too.

For decal printing, color laser printers held an advantage in the earliest days of inkjet technology (circa 2002) but are now long obsolete for image printing. Black and white laser printing, however is still a good choice for printing all-black decals.
