Abstract

Multi-color electrophotographic printing is substantially identical to the process of black and white printing. However, rather than forming a single latent image on the photoconductive surface, successive latent images corresponding to the different colors desired in the copy are recorded. Each single color electrostatic latent image is developed with the appropriately colored toner. The single color toner images are transferred to the copy sheet in superimposed registration with one another. This creates a multi-layered toner image on the copy sheet. Thereafter, the multi-layered toner image is permanently affixed to the copy sheet creating a color copy.
