Abstract

A highlight color module that can be installed and removed by a customer/user at will that adds highlight color capability to a black only printer is disclosed. Separation of printing functions in the printer architecture results in a modular design which minimizes cost and permits: flexible modularity; minimal cost increase to the base printer (black only); and a single color module which carries nearly all of the incremental cost of the added highlight color capability.
