Methods of extending thermal ink jet technology to high copy speeds have relied in the past on the use of full width array thermal ink jet heads. Specific methods of implementation have traditionally focussed upon the use of a stationary head with a controlled velocity transport. This approach has .the complex problems associated with it of precise control of paper velocity, how to accomplish intersheet "guttering", and the specific embodiment of long term head maintenance mechanisms.
