Just my experience based on a previous project that involved migrating printed statements that had to be printed on special "stationary" on an IPDS printer to providing a PDF of the same. The original application created an IDPS spool file with just text and sent the spool file to a IPDS printer. The opertator would load the paper trays with the stationary before the spools were scheduled to print. The stationary had a masthead/logo on the front and a long legal notice on the back side. The new version of the application created a PDF in the IFS. The front side of the stationary was converted to a JPEG file in the IFS. Then when we created the PDF document, I included the JPEG in the PDF at runtime. The plan to handle the legal notice was to include it as the last page in the PDF document because we could not garentee that the recipient had a printer that could handle double-sided printing. I would avoid any solution which requires specialty papers, as it is not a flexible solution. Just my 2 cents, Sarah On 11/15/06, daparnin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx <daparnin@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote:
Another thing to consider is if you have any legal jargon printed on the *back* of your multi-part forms. In the past I've seen some users choose to use "preprinted plain paper" to accomplish this. As I recall, it was still cheaper than multi-part forms. If your printer can handle duplex printing you could do it yourself, or put it in a back-side overlay but it might add a bit of logic if you choose to address it programmatically.
