Abstract

Disclosed is a method for preparing a responsive answer sheet xerographically in which a film of removable light occluding material is deposited over original printed matter contained on a surface, The method steps comprise: (a) covering the surface containing the original printed matter with a mask pattern in the form of the occluding matter, (2) forming a latent electrostatic image of the covered sheet on a xero~ graphic photoreceptor, (c) developing the latent image with toner, (d) separating the mask from the sheet and transfer-~ ring the developed toner image to the sheet in register with portions of the sheet to be occluded, and (e) partially fus~ ing the toner image on the sheet to a point between a class 1 and a class 2 fix whereby the toner is partially fused to a degree sufficient to provide usable copy but insufficient to prevent removal of the toner without damage to the original printed matter.
