Escape commands for dot matrix printers
Posted on 2006-11-23
I need to print balance information for our clients, in special forms and a dot matrix Epson MX-8100 printer. The special forms are those with external random black points such that on cannot see, even against a light, what is printed inside it. The forms have a blank area, where we can print the destinatary name and address.
We need to print the name/address, of course, visible, by using the ink strip, but want to print the balance information (financial sensible information) without actually printing, just with the needles direct in the paper, with no ink strip between the hammers and the paper.
Is there a ESCAPE command such tells the printer to not use the ink strip?
If such command isn't allowed in this model, there are others with such feature?
(Hope I explained well enough...)
Thanks in advance.
