OverLAZ is a collection of over 200 image overlay files for use
with word processing programs, databases, spreadsheets and other
applications, and a laser printer. Two separate versions are
available: OverLAZ HP is for HP LaserJet compatible printers
(Series II, III, 4, and 5 series, as well as some Deskjet series) and OverLAZ PS is for PostScript based
OverLAZ HP files are designed for 300 x 300 dpi resolution.
Printers capable of higher resolution (such as the LaserJet 4 at
600 x 600 dpi), will print the OverLAZ files at 300 x 300 dpi.
Many word processing, spreadsheet and database programs are
capable of downloading direct commands to a printer prior to
and/or during printing a job. OverLAZ uses this capability to
automatically print letterheads, images and/or borders on a text
page. The overlays are inserted in your document or printout
when it is printed on a laser printer. The OverLAZ
collection includes general office forms (such as 'inter-office
memo', 'notice of meeting', etc.) in several different styles, as
well as rubber stamp (or 'watermark') type overlays (such as
'DRAFT', 'confidential', etc.) and page frames and borders.
OverLAZ files are designed to work with a minimally equipped
'bare bones' LaserJet series II or compatible printer (i.e. with
only 512k RAM and no extra font cartridges). Of course, OverLAZ
is fully compatible with extra printer RAM, fonts and cartridges,
as well as LaserJet series III, 4 and 5 printers. OverLAZ will
print at 300 DPI resolution on the 600 DPI LaserJet 4 printer.
With OverLAZ, you only need to keep one kind of paper (normal
blank paper) in your laser printer. There is no need to juggle
forms and special letterhead papers each time you want to print!
Because OverLAZ HP uses LaserJet specific command sequences, it
is not compatible with other types of printers such as PostScript
based laser printers, dot matrix, or most ink jet or bubble jet printers. The PostScript version will only work with PostScript
(OverLAZ HP also works with some of the newer HP Deskjet printers, such
as the HP Deskjet 1600 series.)
