IPDS stashes the overlays on the printer. A company called
www.iocorp.com makes both IPDS memory cards for selected printers,
and a generic IPDS box (similar to a jet direct box). We've used
both with decent results.
AFP needs to build a bit map of each page with overlay, then send it
to the printer. On a local network this will usually perform
adequately, if slowly. Over a communication link the overhead to
send a complete bit map of every page quickly bogs things down.

I want to store an AFP overlay on a printer so it doesn't need to be
loaded for each form. Anyone have any recommendations on products? Feel
free to contact me off-line, including vendors.
