Abstract

Mixed reproduction job integration by appropriate inserts of color bearing sheets into primarily black and white job sets before set binding or finishing is a well known, common, practice, as don& manually, or by off-line inserter/collators. Color sheet insertion integration is also done by manually stacking pre-printed color image or color highlight printed sheets into the regular paper tray, or a special insert tray, of a black and white (black only) copier or printer, which is programed to feed those sheets interleaved at the proper selected page locations by known inserts or chapterization software controls, in a predetermined manner to obtain collated output sets.
