Electronic forms are non-physical images of the printing from standard pre-printed forms which have been scanned, vectorized, compressed, and stored in the memory of a laser or other printer and which are then overlaid on top of print data from an application on the computer system.
This allows the printer to be loaded with blank paper or generic stock and eliminates the need for specific preprinted forms! The printer adds the form to the blank stock at the same time it prints the data.
eForms also address other shortcomings of pre-printed forms: Use of a preprinted form can cause problems with alignment of data with the graphics. Margins on different laser printers vary. Therefore, we recommend the use of eforms, which eliminate alignment problems because the form moves with the data. The result is perfect alignment!
Electronic Forms Plus, Inc. Specializes
in eforms support for the hotel industry. In addition to our electronic forms,
we supply the following brand generic stock.
In order to function in standard PCL printers, the printer must receive a code that tells it which electronic form image to overlay. Most often, the application program printing the data is configured to send this code. In general this is refered to as integration.
This integration step has already been completed for many applications including:
Included in the code is an ID number that identifies the specific eForm to be used. This allows many eForms to be printed on the same printer without changing stock.
