Abstract

During transfer on electrophoretic web imaging devices, a method to produce white borders on the resulting photoelectric prints is envisioned. This method involves selectively rejecting the pigment used in the ink mix at transfer while still transferring pigment at a quality level equivalent to the quality now obtained using a bias roll transfer member. As this method results in a complete pigment rejection at transfer, the formation of white borders on photoelectric prints is possible.
