A label printer that can either transfer information from graphic masters (such as cards) to copy stock (such as labels) or -print" copies directly from information stored conven-tionally on magnetic computer tape. There are three steps in the process: (1) Translate the input to a latent electro-static image on an insulator. (2) Develop the image by causing ink to coat the charged areas, (3) Print the copy by contact transfer of the ink to the copy stock,
