Paper 1 is printed on either side by two print heads 2 and 3 positioned opposite each other and guided in line direction D by guides 8 and 9 across the paper. The design of the print heads, which are driven by a common motor, is such that in addition to the actual print elements 4 and 5 of one head, platens 7 and 6 are provided for the impact print element of the other head. Details of how the print elements are actuated are not shown, as these may differ, depending upon whether the print concerned is a matrix, print wheel or another type of printer.
