In creating color original documents for reproduction on a color electrophotographic printing machine, it is frequently necessary to employ dots, dashes or lines on graphs. The creation of the foregoing may be greatly simplified by employing a roll 12 comprising a flexible transparent sheet 10 having a plurality of opaque colored dots 14 thereon. Each roll 12 may have a plurality of differently colored dots so that different dotted lines may be created on the colored original document. In lieu of dots 14, transparent sheet 10 may have a plurality of spaced dashes or a line thereon. In these embodiments, each roll will also be of a different color. Thus, multicolor graphs may be simply created through the use of differently colored rolls comprising a trans~- parent material having dots, lines, or dashes thereon.
