What is an Overlay?
An overlay is text and/or images stored in the computer hard disk drive (HDD) as a special
file format that can be printed on 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 print a letter with your company's letterhead, you do not need to load preprinted
letterhead paper in the printer. You need only tell the printer to print the letterhead overlay
on your document.
Creating a New Page Overlay
To use a page overlay, you must create a new page overlay containing your logo or image.
NOTE: The overlay document size must be the same as documents you will print
with the overlay. Do not create an overlay with a watermark.
1 Create or open a document containing text or an image for use in a new page overlay.

needed, save the file for later use.
2 When you change the print settings from your software application, access the printer
