How have you created previous overlays?
The difference between black & white & color overlays is in the AFP print driver used.
It needs to be a color printer - i've used the IBM Infoprint Color 130 AFP Driver
This IBM doc describes it all

Even though the pdf generate may be a 6.1 feature, the color overlays have been avail previous.
There are several midrange-l threads on color overlays from 2007-2010.

Subject: Color Overlays with PDF

For years, I have utilized overlays on spoolfiles to print logos, etc. Of course, these overlays have always been black and white. Now (I believe as of 6.1) we are able to print directly to PDFs in the IFS. I would like to be able to create â?ofancyâ?? overlays for PDF spoolfiles, such as color logos and headings/boxes, etc. Is there a utility to generate colored overlays for PDFs, preferably one that is open source/freeware or not too expensive? I work for a small (and by small I mean 4 people total) company and we canâ?Tt afford expensive software to accomplish this task.
