Chuckle, that would work, the first one anyway.  And being almost retired, I 
don't have a 'letterhead', it might generate more work. :(

So I shrank that .png image to 1/4 page and sent lpr to print it, but I 
suspect I need to rotate it too.  lpr is starting about in the middle of a 
blank sheet, & since I told it to use the 1440x1440 profile (-Plp2) it will 
take a while before I can see it.  It appears to have auto-centered it on the 

Humm, looks decent, but the shrink left it fuzzy. And the 1440 mode doesn't 
use all nozzles.  Try one at 360x, and that shows a nozzle pattern and is 
fast.  At least I will have a reminder that it needs cleaned before I waste a 
$heet of good paper.

Thanks for the idea, Tim.  I believe it might help. Daily would use too much 
ink using that image though.

Cheers, Gene
