Abstract

The invention is based on the observation that the media stocks used in some applications that require wide webs are quite durable and flexible. For such stocks, the media can be folded so that only part of the surface is exposed. After a pass through a printer, the media can be refolded so that another (blank) part is exposed and then passed through a printer again. The process can be repeated until all the data has been printed.
