What is the difference between ink jetting and variable printing?

Inkjetting, or inkjet printing is a type of printing that uses ink to render images on paper and other substrates. It is the most common type of printing available, both in business and home use. It is the most affordable type of printing and excellent for any general task. These tasks include printing shopping lists or making copies of images. Inkjetting is also used for variable data, such as putting names and addresses on envelopes and letterhead.

Variable data printing is the ability to use inkjet printing for information that varies from one piece to another. It is a form of digital printing in which text, images, and other elements may be changed from one printed piece to the next. It is commonly used for addressing direct mail. The printer pulls information using a database, usually names and addresses, and prints them individually without stopping the printing process.
