Not printing watermark

January 30, 2012 at 06:56:42
Specs: Windows Vista
I use Micros. VISTA and a HP deskjet 940 C printer. i want to print balnk sheets of paper with only the watermark showing onto which i can photocopy other documernts.

The reason: If there is a risk that my car is stolen i do not want and i am advised by the Police NOT to carry original documents such as insurance certificates and others related to ownership or license for the car. Thus if i take a blank piece of paper and print with a watermark and then photcopy the original document when i am stopped i can have some credibility to show that i have the documents that tie up with my name on my driving license which ia m obliged to carry at all time in original.

OK, so you've told about your OS and your printer

You've told us what you want to do and why you want to do it.

What you haven't told us is anything about the problem. We don't know what application you are using or what is/is not happening.

Perhaps a few more details would help.

What printer driver are you using?

If you are using a PCL5 or PCL6 driver I don't think you will see the watermark printed successfully. I suggest that you may need to use a postscript printer driver.

why would you need to carry copies in your car.

You don't need to prove ownership, if your pulled over, they are going to run your plates (and possibly the VIN if something seems wrong) anyway and it will come back as to who the owner is.

You don't carry the original insurance certificate, you carry the part that says place this in your car as proof of insurace.

You need to carry the registration, the REAL registration, not a copy. If you show them a copy, they are going to think something is suspicious. A thief can't do anything with the registration anyway.

If you are using the paper to copy onto then any printer will do. You will have to create a very low density image that will show in the background. The only possible problem is if the ink smears when run through the copier. It is easiest when done with PCL or Postscript printers.
