I've been trying several times to make an overlay printing by using the xerox phaser 6110 and also tried it on...
the xerox 3119. Just doesn't work. I wonder if you can help me. I scanned the letter head .jpg file I'm using Windows XP. Does it need a special program to be able to print overlays? Would I need a special program to create an .ovl file or there is a program that converts .jpg to .ovl and then everything will work ok? If it requires a certain program, is there a free one to use?
You can create an overlay from any source file, including a .jpg, using IBM AFP printer driver, available from IBM. The driver, and instruction on how to create AFP resources using that driver are on the IBM website.
