Abstract

A proposed method of using a high speed print mode for a Thermal Ink Jet (TIJ) printer is disclosed. There are four print heads, three for color and one for black. Increased black through-put is achieved by creating a "fast mode" black text. As used in this description, "fast mode" black refers to a combination of true black and process black pixels.
