An ink jet head 10 having a single nozzle 12 is attached to a movable, endless belt 14 as shown in Figure 1. The belt is mounted on rotatable roller 16 and driven roller 18. The driven roller is rotated at a constant speed in the direction of arrow 20 by any well-known means (not shown). The axes of rollers 16 and 18 are parallel with each other and perpendicular to a web paper 22. The lengths of belt 14 between the rollers 16 and 18 are at an angle 8 with a line 24 which is perpendicular to the direction of movement of the paper.
