Title (EN) POSITIONING AN INDICIUM FOR PRINTING ON A SUBSTRATE
(FR) POSITIONNEMENT D'UN AFFRANCHISSEMENT A IMPRIMER SUR UN SUBSTRAT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method for positioning an indicium for printing on substrate. The indicium can be an IBIP type indicium and the substrate can be the surface of an envelope. The substrate has printable and complementary unprintable areas and a reserved clear area where printing is possible but unacceptable. The unprintable area is determined (52) as function or printer characteristics and substrate dimensions. If the indicium overlaps (56) the reserved clear area the indicium is modified (60) by shifting portions of the indicium with respect to each other so that none overlaps the reserved clear area.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé permettant de positionner un affranchissement à imprimer sur un substrat. L'affranchissement peut être un affranchissement de type IBIP et le substrat peut être la surface d'une enveloppe. Ce substrat présente des zones imprimables et non imprimables complémentaires et une zone claire dégagée où l'impression est possible, mais inacceptable. La zone non imprimable est déterminée (52) en fonction de caractéristiques de l'imprimante et de dimensions du substrat. Si l'affranchissement chevauche (56) la zone clair dégagée, il est modifié (60) par déplacement mutuel de parties dudit affranchissement, de manière qu'aucune ne chevauche la partie claire dégagée.
