What is an Overlay?

An overlay is text and/or images stored in the computer hard

any document. Overlays are often used to take the place of
preprinted forms and letterhead paper. Rather than using
preprinted letterhead, you can create an overlay containing the
exact same information that is currently on your letterhead. To

document.
