Basic Page-Printing Concepts

The printer expands your printing ability to include new functions, such as in-house publishing, image printing, and electronic forms creation. These special uses are made possible by the Advanced Function Presentation™ (AFP) licensed programs1. The AFP™ programs let you put text, image, graphics, and bar codes at any defined point on a page. This ability is called all-points addressability.

Some printers print a single line as a unit. This process is known as line printing. The printer and AFP create and print an entire page as a unit. This approach, known as page printing, increases your flexibility in designing pages.
