Paper Abstract

The products and technologies employed to produce hardcopy documents, and short-run reproductions of these documents, have changed dramatically in the last two decades. Impact printing devices such as typewriters, daisy wheel printers, and dot matrix printers have been replaced to a significant extent by devices employing nonimpact printing technologies such as laser electrophotography, ink jet, and thermal transfer printing processes. The dramatic growth in the use of nonimpact printers can be attributed to a variety of factors. This paper examines these factors, with an emphasis on image enhancement techniques that have been incorporated in these products and which have facilitated the broad market acceptance of nonimpact printing.
