Copy Protect: Printing a Text or Patter on the Entire Image

When you use a sheet printed with the Copy Protect function as original, light gray-colored text and background as well as the copy image will be printed on the output result. With these text and background printed, the copy-protected output sheets will prevent illegal copy and information leakage.

  • There are four types of text: [Copy], [Invalid], [Illegal copy], and [Invalid copy]. There are three types of background: Cherry Blossoms, Arabesque, and Lattice. Select one from each category to use them in combination. You cannot select only the text or background.

  • The watermark and background always print in 100% magnification, while the original image is enlarged, reduced, or combined.

  • The text size of watermark is 44 points.

  • Printed position of watermark is the same as that of Set Numbering of Watermark.
