Xerox Disclosure Journal
This disclosure relates to an envelope addressor utilizing a xerographic address printer. A hopper is provided for stacked, coded, printed address cards. The address cards are initially fed past a scanner to read the code on the card. If the scanner determines from the code that the address is to be printed, the card is fed over an exposure aperture and momentarily stopped. A photocell may be utilized in conjunction with a preprinted mark on the card to stop the card in correct alignment with the aperture. At the same time, an envelope is fed from the envelope supply hopper and the address is xerographically transferred to the envelope which is then fed to the output hopper.
