I stumbled across this video the other day and ended up watching all of it. It's a great talk on why there are still merits to printing our work in an increasingly all-digital world.
My life is extremely digitized, so much so that even as a graduate student, I went through less than a ream of paper for my work last year. Nonetheless, I find photographic prints ceaselessly intriguing and wonderful. Tangible is cool. That's why I still bring my Instax to things like engagement shoots, and it's always a hit. One of my favorite gifts to give anyone (not just photography friends) is a framed print.
Drew Gurian makes some great points in this lecture. Beyond a print being tangible, it encourages you to spend time with it. It's easy to click or swipe past photos, no matter how brilliant they might be, but a print, by virtue of its physical presence, encourages you to linger on it, to examine it more closely. As he hints at, that can be a huge boon when presenting your work in a professional environment, such as bidding for a job.
