Additional Media Guidelines

Follow the media guidelines below for successful printing:

Paper

  • Rough, highly textured, limp, or pre-curled papers will result in lower print quality and more frequent paper feed failures.
  • Colored papers must be able to withstand 190 deg C (400 deg F) fusing temperature.
  • Preprinted forms and letterheads should be selected using guidelines found in the printer User's Guide. The chemical process used in preprinting may render some papers unsuitable for use with the Infoprint 1312.
  • Unsuitable papers include multipart forms and documents; chemically treated papers; coated, synthetic and thermal papers; and preprinted papers requiring a high degree of registration.
  • Recycled paper less than 80g/sqm may cause unacceptable results.

Envelopes

  • All envelopes should be new, unused, and without package damage.
  • Envelopes with excessive curl or twist exceeding 6 mm, those stuck together, those with bent corners or nicked edges, or those that interlock should not be used.
  • Minimum weight: 75 g/m2 (20 lb.)
  • The following envelopes should not be used:
    • Envelopes with windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, or deep embossing.
    • Envelopes with metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars.
    • Envelopes with exposed flap adhesive when the flap is in the closed position.
    • For best results, printing on new 90 g/m2 (24 lb.) sulfite or 25% cotton bond envelopes is recommended.
    • Under high humidity conditions (over 60%), envelopes may seal during printing.

For Optra Forms:

For Optra Forms:

  • No Server-based or host based merge program or software is required.
  • Use with virtually any ASCII text print file from any platform, mainframe, iSeries, UNIX or workstation, over Coax, Twinax, parallel, serial or LAN (TCP/IP).
  • Generally, make no changes to database applications.
  • Print different forms at different locations from the same database, possibly using the same data.
  • Update forms quickly and easily (globally) over the LAN
  • Provides support for bar codes, color, duplex, multipage form sets and more.
  • Store forms as efficient, compact forms in flash.

Optra Forms is supported by the Infoprint 1312 printer using the Optra Forms 2, 4, 8 and 16MB Flash DIMMs or Optra Forms Hard Disk.

(#4872) Optra Forms Director Feature
  • Minimum required = 0, maximum allowed = 1
  • Prerequisite = Optra Forms Software (FC 4871), Co-requisite = none

Optra Forms Director is a Windows NT or Windows 2000 server-based program. Using additional host software (AS/400, UNIX or Mainframe), the host application sends a print spool file to a Windows NT or 2000 print queue. Optra Forms Director service automatically parses the print spool file into single or multiple print jobs using Microsoft Visual Basic Script or JScript methods and Named Pipes.

The spool file which may contain many individual documents is customized by separating it into individual jobs or by adding data or particular commands to the individual documents that are then sent to IP, LPR, or Windows printer destinations. The additional data or commands may be to staple, separate documents with a cover page, copy and collate, print on both sides, offset stack, fax, or hole punch each individual job. Print jobs are customized and distributed electronically to network printers automatically without making any changes to host applications.

Optra Forms is supported on the Infoprint 1312 using a Optra Forms flash or Hard Disk. Only one Optra Forms flash DIMM is supported. If a Flash DIMM and Optra Forms Flash DIMM are both installed, the Optra Forms DIMM will be used.

(#4880) Optra Forms Manager
  • Minimum required = 0, maximum allowed = 1
  • Prerequisite = Optra Forms Flash (FCs 4873, 4874, 4875, 4876), Co-requisite = none

Optra Forms Manager enables administrators to manage and distribute forms to multiple printers over a TCP/IP network. This includes loading new forms and updating existing forms on an Optra Forms printer over a TCP/IP network.

Optra Forms Manager lets you:

  • Keep a master copy of all forms on a PC
  • Update all printers at same time over TCP/IP after a printer query for its resident Styles and creation dates. Only matching Styles (flash files) with different creation dates are downloaded to the printer over TCP/IP.
  • Import a printer IP address txt file (also from MarkVision** registry)
  • Select the printers to which the Download or Update operations apply.
  • Run the update as a batch job
  • Create a log file to know successful printer updates
  • Create a Style report and save it to a comma separated variable (CSV) file giving better knowledge about the forms in all the printer. The Style report includes the printer listed by their IP address or DNS name and a description, Style names and their versions and the Optra Forms Merge program version in each printer.
  • Create PDF files (using Acrobat Distiller) of the data merged with forms after retrieving archive data files from the Optra Forms hard disk. The PDF file can be saved as a softcopy archive file.

    Note: With an Optra Forms hard disk, create a job buffering partition or change its size. After the disk is formatted and partitioned, the Optra Forms Merge program is written to the disk.

To use Optra Forms Manager, the Optra Forms printers must be connected to a TCP/IP network. The LPR protocol is also supported to download forms.

Optra Forms Manager is now available on a separate CD for those customers who want to use this program to more effectively manage their Optra Forms printers over TCP/IP. Other third party service providers can also manage their customers forms more cost effectively.
