Abstract

Conventional wire matrix printers may include 9 wires for printing characters in a known manner. Such printers may also include the feature of dual printing to print dots between previously printed dots to form a higher quality printed character. With such a printer, it is also possible to print a condensed size character using only 4 wires and overprinting between the dots formed by the 4 wires.
