    White on black

    Can a standard Lexmark inkjet printer print white on black paper?
    I was asked this today and could not answer the person. Strange, but what is the verdict?

    I doubt if any printer can print white on black - UNLESS it has a white ink cartridge (and personally I've never heard of such a thing!)

    Normally white is obtained by not printing on white paper - i.e. to get white text on black you would print the black background on white paper. I would also imagine that technically a good white ink or toner would be difficult to produce due to the opacity it would require for printing onto coloured medium.

    Tx for the reply!

    PS: Haven't heard that word in a while: "opacity". Because of this the white ink may cause clogging problems in the cartridge too! <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Opacity is not the same as viscosity...

    Quite! And yellow has a tendency to clog up the streets as well.
