Abstract

A photographic character-by-character printer is provided by the use of a spherical character stencil matrix 1. The latter is tilted and rotated by appropriate control mechanism 2 to present individual character-shaped apertures 3 in alignment with flash lamp 4. Characters projected by lamp 4 are focused by magnifying lenses 5, 6 or 7 onto light sensitive medium 8 within cartridge 9. Character spacing is obtained by lateral movement of matrix 1 along supporting rail 10.
