More information about print options
The following sections provide additional information about print options.
See the table above for information on the settings, requirements, and
constraints in effect for these options.
When printing black text in combination with a color background or
graphics, the text can be printed in one of two ways: either as part of the color
background, or on top of the color background. Black Overprint allows you
to choose a speciﬁc way to print the black text for such a job.
—Prints the black text with knockouts. The iR C2100/2100S ﬁrst prints
the color background with the black text areas 'knocked out' (no color is
printed in the text areas); the black text is then printed in the knocked out
area, ﬁlling in the areas not printed in color. The result is a ﬂatter appearance
for the black text.
—Overprint the black text. Used in combination with the Pure Black
Text/Graphics option, the iR C2100/2100S ﬁrst prints the full color
background, then lays the black text on top of the color background as 100%
K toner. The result is a darker and glossier appearance for the black text.
Overprinting also minimizes misregistration and 'haloing' problems.
